Offered is an exquisite sterling silver Dragon's Breath or Jelly Opal Czech art glass necklace. This necklace is signed Sterling on the back of the main pendant. There are no makers marks, but this necklace was most likely made during the arts & crafts period. The lines are simple except for small daisies linking the stones together. The emphasis of the design is on the fiery color changing art glass stones. These are old stones, that have a luminous amber pink color. When the stones hit the light or movement there are iridescent flashes of pink, purple, orange and blue. These old stones really have the best colors, magical!!
This is an unusual necklace in that there are quite a few stones. Two side stones, the large main focal stone and 3 dangles. This necklace is in very good to excellent vintage condition with no damage. It has not been cleaned or polished and there is some patina to the silver. The necklace measures 16 1/2" wearable length, and the center pendant measures 1 3/8" across, and 1 1/2" long.
This is a beautiful antique necklace and my photos do not do it justice. Dragon's breath is one of my favorites of all of the old Czech art glass. Any collector would be thrilled to add this beauty to their collection or wardrobe.
