It is with great hesitation that I am adding this to my store, as it has been in my collection for so many years. But I am sure it will go to a good home and be loved and appreciated for the treasure that it is.
For those not familiar, here is a little summery of the Neiger brothers. Max and Norbert Neiger were brothers who made jewelry with figural glass components in Gablonz, Czechoslovakia, from 1905 to the 1930s. As the Germans advanced near Gablonz in 1939, the two Jewish brothers left their factory and escaped to Bohemia, where they continued to produce jewelry in a scaled-down operation. In 1942 the were killed by the Nazis at Auschwitz. Neiger jewelry is characterized by beautiful Czech glass beads, and lovely metal parts. The Neiger Brothers took advantage of the Egyptian Revival craze, beginning with the discovery of King Tut's tomb in 1922.
This necklace is an example of Egyptian Revival jewelry with a 2 inch square pendant and a King Tut figural with colorful unique glass stones surrounded the figure. The three glass tassels are 3 inches long and the chain is 25 inches long with graduated glass bead, so it hands 17 inches. It has a clasp so you can clasp it shorter. The Czech glass beads have a givre effect with greens and yellows and are simply beautiful. The beauty is in excellent condition and truly is a work of art that looks stunning when worn and will the center piece of any collection.
