This is a wonderful vintage Art Deco necklace of graduated galalith beads carved through the pale green surface to show the cream color underneath. It fastens with a celluloid screw or barrel catch. The color is gorgeous and the style is marvelous. Galalith is a milk based early plastic.
The necklace measures 16 inches. It is in excellent condition. There is a little fading to the green color on some of the beads, particularly around the back. It looks like it is on its original string and it is a little loose, but it seems secure. It is usually a good idea to have older beads restrung for security but I will leave the decision to the new owner.
