This 50” long butterscotch swirl bakelite necklace is also translucent when back lit and the swirl shows up much more noticeably then. There is variation in the amount, as there should be.
The beads are all matched at 14 mm or 9/16” except for the 4 smaller beads which form the screw-in closure. The necklace is strung on what appears to be heavy-duty double string without spacers, but loose enough to keep it very flexible.
This would be classed as chunky +. It is a very good weight at 200+ gms.
It has tested positive with the hot water test and very positive with simichrome. I doubt it has ever been cleaned. It still has the original shine to each bead.
Condition: Mint condition. I can find no flaws! Each bead appears as new. The closure screws in smoothly and tightly. Please view all photos as they give a good indication of the quality and also view close-ups to see the swirl. This would be a fabulous gift for the collector.
