This necklace is gorgeous! The color of the red glass beads is the best red ever. Beads are Czech and necklace probably dates from the late 1920's or 1930's. The center bead is just under 7/8" end to end. The large oval beads are 1 3/8" end to end. All of the beads are hand knotted in between. There is no clasp so you can just slip it over your head. Necklace is in excellent condition. I do not see any chips on the beads.
