This lovely mosaic necklace is Italian in origin, marked "Italy" on the back. It is made of brass. The brass links are set with tiny pellets of multi-colored Venetian glass in mosaics. The central medallion features a floral bouquet on a white ground. Many shapes and colors of tiny pellets are used; some pellets have two, three, and even four colors themselves. There is a lot of detail. This "festoon" necklace dates from the early part of the twentieth century, probably between 1900 and 1920. It is 16" long with the center of the necklace dropping another 2." The necklace is in excellent original condition with no verdigris, missing pellets, or other damage. It has an easy-to-work spring-ring clasp.
