This beautiful vintage necklace dates from the 1950s and is an excellent representation of classic mid-century milk glass.
It features four strands of white glass beads measuring 10mm, spaced with angular clear glass 6mm beads. It measures 16 1/2" in length with a hook clasp. The clasp is stamped W. Germany.
West Germany, along with Hong Kong and Japan, became one of the largest manufacturers of costume jewelry mid century after WW II. These pieces are becoming increasingly collectible, offering a vast range of beads, colors and historical significance.
This necklace is in mint condition after all of these years, which is a testament to the quality craftsmanship of this piece. Perfect for summer, garden party, resort wear or even a bride!
