Classic 1930s German Art Deco Chrome and Galalith Pendant necklace by the master Jacob Bengel. Excellent condition. Spring ring clasp closure. A machine age beauty...this 24" necklace comprised of white metal chrome chain interspersed with dark red galalith ball stations and then tubular chrome over the chain elements leading to another dark red galalith ball station with a gorgeous terminus- a glossy black and red smooth teardrop pendant another almost 2" long. Much more metal is utilized in European galalith jewelry than in its more well known American cousin Bakelite, and the result is a super streamlined, linear and wearable tailored less whimsical tone and quality. Not marked. Excellent vintage condition. Spring ring clasp.
