Gorgeous Carved Agate Beads Hand Made Adjustable Woven Silk Cord Necklace
$195.00 This Sautoir necklace has a decidedly Eastern feel. It came from an estate of a very well traveled lady. She traveled the world..It is hand made with a fantastic knotted green traditional Chinese silk cord which is accented with gold thread and the gold thread is in between each bead also. It probably dates to the earlier part of the 20th century and is in excellent vintage condition. The beads are a gorgeous translucent color with the moss like darker green inclusions. The beads are hand formed and drilled and there fore are slightly different. They are about 1" long and 1/2" wide but do vary...they are stunning!! The necklace measures 30" long and can be adjusted with the sliding knot. Excellent vintage condition.
The 1920s ushered in a new silhouette for the ladies, one in which the dress elongated into the most elegant columnar styles. The beauty and elegance of this form was often rendered in silk and velvet and embroidered or trimmed in sequins. These elongated styles required long necklaces and the French happened to have the perfect word for such a thing, the Sautoir.
