Rare DeNicola Lion Necklace With Bakelite, Enamel and RhinestonesRare DeNicola Lion Necklace With Bakelite, Enamel and RhinestonesRare DeNicola Lion Necklace With Bakelite, Enamel and Rhinestones

This rare DeNicola necklace from the l960s features a deliciously playful lion that is created with coral-colored bakelite, dark green enamel and clear rhinestones. Surrounding our whimsical lion's head is a gold-plated halo of sun rays, each one accented with a rhinestone. His paws are holding a sparkling rhinestone star, while his gold-plated feet are standing on what some people have interpreted as the symbol of Leo the Lion, but, in my opinion, could be almost anything --an inverted "U" or a snake. I'll leave it to your imagination. A fabulous example of figural jewelry, the necklace measures 22" in length; the lion itself, 2 1/4" in length; 1 1/4" in width. Signed "DeNicola" on the reverse side.
