I have a weakness for early plastic pieces from Germany and West Germany, and this necklace is no exception. It's a lovely example of the fine design details found in the best of the early plastic pieces.

Round, faceted beads in pale pink transparent lucite, and elongated, faceted beads in solid and transparent pink lucite are interspersed with molded trumpet flowers that have a tiny yellow bead at their throats. The colors appear sharper in the photos than they are in person. The last two photos come closest to the true pastel shades. The pink beads are strung, and the flowers are wired on, creating a delicate lei of soft pink buds and chartreuse green orchids. The detailing is exquisite. Pure confection.

The necklace is approximately 20 1/2 inches long with the clasp in the closed position. It is approximately 1 inch wide.

I would rate the condition as excellent. I see no indication of any missing or damaged beads or flowers, and the ornamental clasp pushes in easily and closes securely.

The clasp is signed Made In Germany. This dates the necklace to the 1940s, as Germany was subdivided after World War II and jewelry was signed West Germany from 1949 to 1990.

This necklace is the perfect accessory for floaty dresses and light summer tops. It weighs only 2 ounces, so is lightweight and comfortable in warm weather.
