This is a stunning necklace! This is an amazing, exotic vintage necklace that dates to the 1920s - 1930s! It is Art Nouveau inspired from reproduction brass filagree during that timeframe. It is made from brass and features beautiful a huge, three dimensional brass medallion with a brass painted glass cameo art nouveau woman. Flowing hair, flowers, etc. make her look like a fairy goddess! Three sections are hooked together to create the pendant section. Brass filagree and large blue gray Czech glass drop is accented with red red a red glass rhinestone, clear faceted beads and tiny pale blue glass insets..
The necklace chain portion is created from faceted blue gray Czech glass beads, decorated with ornate brass bead caps and black glass seed beads and red glass beads to coordinate with the pendant section of the necklace. This closes with a barrel clasp. If you would prefer it to be shortened, I can easily do that with removing some of the chain. Absolutely amazing, feminine and romantic bohemian decadence!
This necklace is from a collection that I have purchased. Is is vintage, new old stock from the 1910s to 1930s that were purchased from the closed factory from the Export Houses of Brditschka and Altmann from the Gablonz region in the Czech Republic. Heindrich Brditschka established his company in 1908 and started manufacturing reproduction contemporary jewelry in the styles Art Nouveau, Edwardian and Victorian with base metals, glass, rhinestones, etc. so that they were affordable. The war shut down the production of the jewelry. The Bohemian glass was created from glass rods that were melted and hand pressed into molds. These piece are ornate, stunning, and incredible craftsmanship. Some of them have soldering on the back since they are hand crafted. The pieces have been cleaned up while still maintaining some of the original patina.

I do not polish my vintage jewelry and silver as some people like the aged patina. I am not an expert on vintage jewelry, but I do buy and sell what I love! Since these items are vintage, they may have a wonderful aged patina and are not meant or expected to look brand new. I treasure their imperfections as part of their charm and history.
