Though this necklace may look like ivory and be carved like ivory, please be assured that this is NOT ivory but some type of non-endangered animal bone. When you look at it through a magnifier, this has the slightly porous patina of bone which has been finished off with a light glossy polish.
The work is detailed with five panels that are reticulated (pierced through) with a design around a small center flower. The chain of long tube beads turns into smaller disk beads and ends with a screw barrel clasp.
The necklace measures 17 inches around by 1 1/2 inches wide at center. Necklace is in excellent vintage condition. Circa 1960s.
