This genuine Bakelite necklace is carved translucent yellow with a surprise inlaid porcelain scene in the center.
The romantic couple vignette appears to be handpainted (no dots as with transferware pictures). With glasses in hand, they seem to be toasting.
The Bakelite flower petals of the pendant are beautifully carved.
The pendant measures 1 3/4 inches across by 2 1/2 inches high. It's 3/8 inch thick. The original yellow celluloid chain measures 16 inches around. The original spring ring clasp has an age-tarnished patina but it still works securely.
Under a magnifier, you might see a couple of tiny nicks to the art but overall condition is excellent. Circa 1930s.
