APPROXIMATE DATE: 1920s – 1930s

MATERIALS: metal

DESCRIPTION:

This is a wonderful piece of historic Machine Age jewelry

This necklace is a classic example of Modernist work. Objects influenced by modernism are concerned primarily with essential qualities of colour and flatness, form and function, and exhibit a reduction of interest in surface decoration.

This is a gorgeous, chrome vintage modernist chrome choker necklace in the style of Jakob Bengel with chrome beads on metal links.

The necklace dates from the 1930's era and was probably made in Germany. It features a very distinctive combination of circular and rectangular chrome spacers combined with silver tone filigree globular beads which diminish in size from the centre.

The central bead is approx 13mm. The flat chrome beads next to it are approx 17mm in diameter and the flat rectangular shaped chrome beads measure approx 20mm x 7mm. The total length including the ring catch is approx 35 ins.

FURTHER INFORMATION:

As an Art movement Modernism involved a rejection of ornamentation and sought inspiration from technology. Objects influenced by modernism are concerned primarily with essential qualities of colour and flatness, form and function, and exhibit a reduction of interest in surface decoration.

Modernist ornaments are simple and sculptural. Rather than being embellished with faceted stones they rely upon minimal surface decoration and upon the excitement of movement and drama for their impact. The salient points in this type of design are a concentration upon craftsmanship, integrity of materials and quality of finish.
