This necklace was made by the renowned WMF factory in Germany. WMF, abbreviation of Württembergische Mettalwarenfabrik, gained recognition for its fine metalwork and for the exquisite iridescent glass beads manufactured during the years 1926-1938. The glass, was designed by Karl Weidman. He perfected the technique of iridized surfaces used by companies like Tiffany and Steuben.

The glass beads, which are solid, strong spheres, have the characteristic, beautiful matte finish and translucent hues. When held to the light the beads all have a warm honey color. This necklace has 49 beads that are approximately 7.5 mm. The beads are separated by original chrome spacers. Each bead has slight variations of color, as each is hand made. They are never signed, but identifiable by the quality of the glass and the characteristic honey hue when held under the light. The beads are often called Favrile, as they are likened to Tiffany glass.

These necklaces are coveted by collectors as they are rare to find, especially in blue and green. I have included pictures of this worn alone and with a gold chain. It is so versatile and perfect for layering.
Elegant and unique.
Germany, circa 1930
