Vintage Early Bakelite, Celluloid & Beads Cherry Necklace with Six Dangling Cherries on metal link chain & Pair of Red Bead Cluster Clip Earrings.
Continuing with "Summer Theme" jewelry after listing my plastic necklace, bracelet and earrings. Bakelite "cherries" dangling from necklaces, pins and bracelets were so popular and many examples of bright red Cherry jewelry are featured in Plastic Jewelry by Lyngerda Kelley and Nancy Schiffer. One photo in this listing shows my necklace next to similar necklaces with the same red bakelite fruits, sometimes the chain necklace is a little different or the number of cherries and leaves that dangle might vary.
This necklace with six cherries in bright red all measure the same round 18mm diameter or just under 3/4". This necklace also has two dangling clusters of small red beads on each side of the center Cherries. The chain measures 16" long with a spring ring clasp. The cluster clip earrings were not a set with the necklace but they are a perfect color match with the clusters of red "berries" that dangle. The overall length of the earrings is 1-1/4" long. You can also remove a few bead dangles from the earrings if you think they are too full. The bakelite cherries were tested using 409 and the towel turned yellow.
The colorful red Cherries with the dangling clip earrings are the perfect jewelry accessory to wear this time of year.
