This wonderful dramatic antique necklace features art glass cabochons in a lovely pale amber color in a silver plated Art Nouveau setting. The nine smaller stones are set in the center of a leaves that increase in size and are topped with a larger stone. At the bottom is hung an amber colored stone with a floral cap. The entire pendant is hung from heavy silver plated festoon chains.
There are no marks on the necklace but it is probably from Bohemia (the area that became Czechoslovakia post WWI) based on the style of the glass stones.
Size: The pendant is 5 inches long and 1-5/8" wide. The chain is 18 inches long.
Age: circa 1900-1914
Condition: Excellent vintage condition. There is one small flea bite in the pendant stone next to the pin head.
