Vintage Art Deco Very Unusual Faceted Cherry Amber Necklace with Carved Celluloid Rose Bead Necklace
This is a very pretty necklace. The faceted genuine cherry amber beads are a variety of sizes and shapes. Firstly I will say that the necklace does need to be re-strung. This was strung sometime in the 20's and the stringing is very fragile. That said, the amber is wonderful!
The necklace measures 18 1/2" long. The largest center Amber bead measures 1 1/8" x 3/4" thick. That bead is a deeper red, perhaps because it is so large. Then there are smaller beads next to the center piece. Then there are carved rose celluloid beads which each measure 3/4" x 3/4". There are next round faceted amber beads which measure 1/2". Lastly there are 20 oblong shaped faceted amber beads which each measure 5/8" x 1/2" thick. It is substantial. The necklace weighs 49 grams. What a terrific Vintage Deco piece which is longing to be restrung with hand knotting. Enjoy this lovely piece.
