Vintage Great Big Balls of Sour Green Bakelite Choker NecklaceVintage Great Big Balls of Sour Green Bakelite Choker NecklaceVintage Great Big Balls of Sour Green Bakelite Choker NecklaceVintage Great Big Balls of Sour Green Bakelite Choker Necklace

Years ago (early 1970s), when the New York Times fashion editor came to see our Bakelite jewelry collection for an article, she described this color as 'sour green'. She had nailed it...that mix of green and yellow that some call olive drab or o.d. green. But 'sour green' is just what it looks like and it's a great color for Bakelite.

In this not-quite-a-choker necklace, the green has lots of swirl. The Bakelite ball domes line up in a row of silver-tone 'nests'.

The necklace measures 16 inches end to end. You can clasp it anywhere from 13 to 15 3/4 inches to wear it as a choker or not quite so close. The width is 7/8 inch.

The necklace is circa 1940s/50s. Unmarked. Tested genuine Bakelite. Minimal wear to metal back... overall in excellent condition. And as sour green as a delicious pickle.
