Very vibrant vintage Venetian art glass blue and white beads are combined with white geometric shaped Deco inspired plastic beads and white ceramic bead spacers.
This necklace is a WOW piece.
Colors of speckled true cobalt blue and white contrast and complement each other. (My photos don't show how truly gorgeous and rich and deep the color truly is).
Every third large bead is blue and white art glass. In between these are 2 large plastic beads. And in between each and every bead of the necklace is a tiny white ceramic bead that mimics a knot.
Signed Miriam Haskell in the oval cartouche hang tag.
Slide clasp was introduced in1975. It is a flat oblong coupling device that provides a very secure clasp for this necklace.
Other than a tiny bit of corrosion on the hangtag, clasp and metal end cap., this necklace is in excellent condition. Just view the photos and you will see how it is a pretty much unnoticeable and appears only on one side of the clasp and tag. If not for this, the necklace would command a much higher price.
Measures 28-1/2" in length. Art glass beads measure 1/2"across and 5/8"in length.
