This is a great looking root beer bakelite necklace. It has two elements - bakelite beads and silvertone filigree balls. The bakelite has four different shapes. The dangle is almost a trapezoid but has rounded edges. They there are the oval beads and the two round ones. The most interesting ones are in between the filigree beads. They are a very pretty shape and are thick on the outside edges and thinner in the center. The color is great! The beads are wonderful. The necklace was re-strung at some time with plastic string. The original fittings are on the dangle and the barrel clasp is probably original. The necklace is secure and in excellent condition although you can see the knots at the clasp end. It is about 25 1/2" long and the center is a bit over 2" top to bottom including the bale.
