This is a One-of-a-Kind Vintage Handmade necklace made of both a beautiful Bakelite "fan" style pendant and tiny gorgeous green jade/Lucite beads.
It is an unusual and unique piece - one that wears well with every ensemble and event. I have never seen anything quite like it; this choker length necklace is bright in color and brilliant in design. The Bakelite "fan" pendant is carved and a rich butterscotch Bakelite. The grooves/carving are a deeper goldenrod/burnt orange color. The tiny beaded strand is a happy and vibrant green (does not test for Bakelite)....I am not 100% certain what type of stone/Vintage resin it is made from...It has a jade-like hue, but a feel of mid-century Lucite. I apologize that I cannot offer much provenance, history or artist information - I found this piece at auction - the look alone was enough for me! I knew I would never find another necklace like this one so I scooped it up, no questions asked.
It is mid-century craftsmanship meets modern runway fashion at its finest. This necklace is remarkable for so many reasons...I have loved and enjoyed it....and I hope you will too. It's "story" is only starting, the pages it has yet to write will be both fabulous and fun.
Measurements - the fan is approximately 2 5/8" across and 1 3/4" tall. Length of beaded "chain" is 14" from end to end - the "drop" is approximately 6 3/4". The clasp is a shiny gold tone.
I test and guarantee all of my Bakelite pieces. I have attached photos to provide a better "picture" of color, wear, condition and testing results. This necklace is in excellent Vintage condition...there are no chips/scratches, missing parts or damage.
