From that same wonderful New York estate as other pieces being listed today, comes this vintage bakelite necklace.
It is made of gorgeous cherry amber bakelite beads and measures a great 28" length. The beads are a rich orange red color and are highly faceted. The necklace graduates from a central 20mm bead down to a 6mm bead. It has the original screw clasp and is in fine vintage condition. The string is strong, and I suspect it has been re-strung over the years, however there is an approximate 1/4" space which you may want to have tightened. It really is not noticeable when worn.
As I am no expert on bakelite, I have had it simichrome tested by three knowledgeable dealers in this field and they all confirmed its contents. It probably dates from the 1930's.
