Magnificent Vintage Cranberry Red and Cream Galalith Necklace from the 1930s. The beads are beautifully carved in many unique shapes. It closes with a barrel clasp and is in excellent condition. The only issue I can see is a slight chipping on the bead next to the clasp.
Galalith is a Bakelite-ish substance from France made from casein (a milk protein) and formaldehyde. It is sometimes called 'French Bakelite.'
16" long x 3/4" at the widest bead.
Very good vintage condition.
