This beautiful and unique Choker Necklace tests as 800 Silver.
At first glance it could be a Czech piece from the Art Deco era, but the unique front plunge clasp and solid etched and filigree settings make it earlier in the century..c1910.. and from the style it is almost certainly French.
Measuring 15" the beautiful Silver and Amethyst glass necklace is in the choker style, but slightly more loose fitting.
It is comprised of 19 bow shaped etched links, linked by rigid oblongs of looped silver, containing 6 small square, solid bezel set, faceted glass Amethysts.
These join at the front to a rectangular solid back, open work setting, with a large rectangular solid bezel set faceted Amethyst glass stone.
The unique slide closure slips neatly and seamlessly into the back of the central rectangle.
The aged patina adds to the ambiance but could be polished for a brighter finish. I have left it 'as found'
The Antique condition is very good.
