Vintage 1930s superbly detailed all-glass fruit necklace and earrings set, from the island of Murano, in Venice, Italy. A riot of color, shape and texture, the "real" fruit and fantasy fruit are smooth or sugared glass.
It's rare to find one in this near-perfect condition, having had only one previous owner. I counted the leaves and each bunch of fruit has three leaves; the pale yellow spiky fruit bunch only has two leaves. But I don't see any chips or nibbles on any piece. Some darkening and greening on the metal wires.
Measures 21" wearable length, with a green bead extender. Clip earrings, about 1-1/2", show dark metal backs, but the clips are nice and tight (marked Italy).
The photos speak for themseleves, so feast your eyes!
the cost of shipping is higher because I will securely double-box, and
these items are not returnable because of their delicate composition.
