Here is a dazzling vintage necklace with gorgeous Czech-glass and green and white enamel.
It's a beautiful example turn-of-the-century design, boasting vibrant colors and a wonderfully unique style in the classic Arts and Crafts style.
The necklace features three panels of sensational marbled green and white Czech glass set in delicately millegrained brass bezels.
These are paired with three other brilliantly enameled panels with a stylized white and Kelly-green design.
Each of the stylized green and white panels is decorated with elegant champlevé enamel bordered by delicate brass.
The Czech glass has the most wonderful white clouding that gives it the elegant look of jade.
Each glass piece is accented with an applied enameled ornamentation that matches the other enameled panels beautifully.
This necklace really is a sensational example of the styles that pervaded in the early 1900s combining old-world shapes and styles with bold, vibrant colors.
The enamel and Czech-glass components alternate before arriving at the large centerpiece.
The decorative panels are suspended on each side with twisted brass chain which is ornamented with round Czech glass beads.
The necklace joins with a floral brass nesting clasp which is stamped "Pat.No.1579983".
As you can see, the brass exhibits a light patina in some areas, while some of the enamel and glass panels show the tiniest amount of wear.
Otherwise, the necklace remains in very good vintage condition.
This is just a unique and beautiful necklace. If you are a lover of the Arts and Crafts era, this is a great addition to your vintage jewelry collection.
