These art deco pieces are listed in the second edition of Popular Jewelry 1840-1940 by Roseann Ettinger, a Schiffer Book for Collectors © 1997 ISBN 0-7643-0133-0 on page 140. The torsade is a multi=strand of tri-colored green glass beads. The shortest strand measures to 15 inches with the extender. The extender is made of larger glass beads. The necklace had brass filigree findings and chain and hook closures. The earrings measure 1 inch round and also have brass findings. The necklace is marked on the hook W. Germany and the earrings are marked Made is Western Germany. The set is in very good condition and is identical to the set in the Schiffer book. I am offering this for much less than the price listed in the book which was set over 10 years ago, and it certainly would have appreciated since then.
