Rare Lucite Ultra Mod, necklace with a torc style construction from the 1970s. From a fantastic estate. It is 14 inches end to end. Shaped center beads are 1-1/2 inch around. Never before seen example in over 35 years of searching the world.
The long, slender, curved tubes are vivid yellow with white, razor thin stripes. They show best in the close up pictures. While this necklace post dates Mid Century Modern by a decade it would fit wonderfully with a Mid Century Modern or futuristic collection
There are gold tone metal caps at the end of each tube. There is a hook at one end and a gold tone metal chain at the other with tiny yellow seed beads and gold spacer beads. Length is slightly adjustable.
The center beads are a wonderful hour glass shape. They are striped yellow and white with some clear showing between the stripes.
All are strung on double strands of heavy thread making the piece flexible.
All the pieces fit together so, the center lays beautifully at the hollow of the throat. It could be lengthened, Just a Bit, by adding some jump rings to the chain a/o hook and chain closure.
Without a doubt it is rare. I have never seen another like it. Ultra Mod Madness. Futuristic fantastic. This lady collected great plastic and unusual wood jewelry. This is necklace is a highlight from her collection.
Minty marvel! No scratches or signs of significant wear. Note: one of the tiny gold tone spacers is missing between on of the long tubes and one of the shaped beads. This was missed in construction. A testament to a hand made piece.
