This is a fun vintage necklace consisting of 13 green brightly glazed ceramic pottery crabs arrayed on an olive green sturdy wide necklace cord. There are 2 types of crabs. There are 6 hermit crabs and 7 regular crabs. The end of the necklace cord loops around the last crab on the other end to close the necklace. The crabs are stitched in place on the cord.
The necklace measures 16.5" long. The hermit crabs are 1.25" long and the regular crabs are 1" across.
Condition: One hermit crab near the end of the necklace has lost a claw.
I've never seen a necklace quite like this. It was too much fun to pass up. It would be great to wear to the beach with a casual long strapless dress.
