This fun necklace is part of some old store stock I recently acquired. Taking a juicy cue from old Bakelite cherry brooches and necklaces, this Lucite acrylic version joins true red round cherry beads with marbled green leaves in a long strand with two tails at the front.
The silver-plated necklace portion is 30" long--no need for a clasp--and the two trailing ends are 6" and 5" including the fruit. The largest cherries are 3/4" in diameter and the smaller are 9/16". Each cherry had a filigree cap on the bottom.
I have worn one of these for years and it never fails to get compliments and, often, a "Is that vintage Bakelite?" response . It's a super fun piece and the condition of this unworn beauty is excellent.
