The rare times we find a genuine piece of jewelry by the Neiger Brothers, it's like holding 'greatness' in your hands. No one could really match their unique, intricate designs, made mostly with embossed glossy Czech glass in vibrant colors.
This early Art Deco era necklace is a long strand...38 inches. Since it has a spring ring clasp, this can easily be doubled or worn long, flapper style.
The beads are a unique color combination...periwinkle blue/violet and a turquoise green. The latter beads are flying saucer shaped (7/16 inch wide) and the blue beads are dimpled on each side (1/4 inch wide). The beads are all hand-knotted in between.
This Neiger Brothers design has its original stringing which seems secure. Excellent vintage condition.
(The sad epilogue ... Max and Norbert Neiger were living in Czechoslovakia where the brothers made high-quality 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. They were later arrested in Prague and, in 1942, were killed by the Nazis at Auschwitz. (Photo is of Max Neiger in 1924.)
