This very unusual and outstanding necklace and clip earrings set is from the early 1950's and is signed, "W Germany". The two-strand 19" necklace has genuine lightweight Lucite beads which are connected by brass wire. They are in shades of blue and black, and the colors are very vibrant and striking. The pendant measures 2" across and the beads are wired onto a gold-tone lacy filigree back, typical of German pieces from this era. The clasp is a push-pin box style topped with one big blue rivoli Lucite cabochon. The matching earrings are 1" in diameter.
The set is in great shape, but does show its age a bit as there is some wear to the facets on some beads, and the brass has patina. None of this is noticeable to the naked eye, and it still wears beautifully.
