This is a delightful Bakelite necklace with the interesting shield shaped plaques. They are spaced with matching beads and small goldtone spacers are at each end of the beads. The shields are 1 1/8" x 1 1/8" and the beads are about 9mm. There is some wear to the finish on some of the goldtone spacers consistent with the age and use of this item. Necklace is adjustable from about 15 1/2" to 19 " and is in excellent condition.
