Vintage "Made in France" Art Glass Necklace
This is a beautiful necklace and perfect for you if you love the color purple. Alternating with the art glass are faceted crystal beads. The smaller beads have a slight "aurora borealis" coating which leads me to think that this was made sometime after the mid-1950's. The only signature on it is "Made in France" which is impressed on the clasp. I don't know who made it but believe that it could be Louis Rousselet because of the clasp. In the last picture you will see a clasp used by Rousselet and it looks very much like the one used here......without the "L.R.", of course!
The inside strand measures 19.5" and the second one drops about 2" and is a substantial necklace but not so much that it is too heavy to wear. It is in excellent vintage condition.
