A gorgeous Art Deco Necklace strung with Vaseline Molded faceted Glass Beads. The Beads are a paler color than they appear in my pictures - they are more of a pale lemon color without the green that they appear to have in the pictures. As you can see, they appear a bright luminous green under UV light.
c1920, the Necklace measures 16 3/8 inches long, with the beads measuring 1/2 inch wide across the middle. The Necklace fastens with a spring clasp.
The Necklace is in reasonable condition for it's age, although the stringing is okay and wearable, it looks as if it was strung by an amateur, so a better job could be done. With the condition of the beads it is hard to be accurate as these were very crudely molded, so a lot of what, at first glance, appears to be damage, is in fact the way the beads were molded and then hand finished. These mold imperfections are only visible using magnification, so do not affect the overall appearance of the necklace, and as it is, it is still lovely and perfectly wearable.
