This fanciful necklace is a great example of early plastics at their best. Its maker pulled out all the stops: the necklace has three magnificently carved ivory colored beads with brown; wavy potato-chip like discs; dark chocolate brown round beads; oval taupe beads that seem to glow from within; small carved ivory beads; and a few small wooden beads that add a natural contrast to the plastics.

This vintage necklace is from the 1920s – ‘30s, when Catalin, Bakelite, Galalith, Lucite and other plastics were in their heyday. One of the trends in jewelry at the time was tribal or “barbaric,” and this necklace was right on trend.

Length is 23”; condition is excellent. The necklace closes securely with a barrel clasp.
