Just amazing, this Chunky Bakelite Necklace comprised of dreamy translucent Apple Juice Bakelite Bells and Cherry Amber Bakelite Cylinders. The bell shapes glow with fire and light. The cylinders look like large yummy gumdrops. These lovely dangles attach to a brass link chain, the bells dropping lower than the cylinders. The bell dangles include purple crackle glass balls glass on top of and beneath. All the bells and cylinders are capped with decorative brass finials. A spring ring clasp holds it all together.
Measures 18-1/4" end to end. The bells drop approx. 2" from where they attach to the necklace; the cylinders, approx. 1".
Age: c. 1940
What a spectacular necklace!
This looks like an early Miriam Haskell necklace to me.
