Wonderful Galalith necklace c1940s made in France. Galalith is similar to bakelite but with a different recipe (Milk protein hardened with formaldehyde without the phenol that's in Bakelite). All hand carved with its original turquoise coloring. Galalith does not fade like Bakelite does. Inside each bead is the signature Galalith chalky color. Each bead is carved clear through creating little dowels inside through which the necklace is strung. Workmanship gone with the times.

The necklace is made so that the hook can latch onto any one of 7 sections of brass chain. The rest of the necklace is on string. From end to end the necklace measures 17 1/2". Hook the clasp into the end elongated bead and the necklace is 17 1/4" long. The largest bead has a 3/4" diameter.

The original string appears just fine. One can always restring if seen as necessary.

The condition is excellent and the coloring beautiful.
