A classic Art Deco Jakob Bengel style geometric style necklace 1930s

CONDITION: good vintage condition

SIZE: Ring clasp fastening. 17 ins (41 cm)

APPROXIMATE DATE: 1920s – 1930s

MATERIALS: metal, Galalith

DESCRIPTION:

This is such a pretty Machine age necklace made in Germany in the Art Deco period 1920/30’s. It is well made with chain links between the elements. The design is very much influenced by that of Jakob Bengel.

The metal is brass with a series of pale blue Galalith elements in the form of an acute triangle. These are fitted in pairs into a brass mounting. Six of these assemblages form the central portion of the ornament. They are linked together by brass spacers.

The final illustration shows a plate from the standard work on Jakob Bengel (Art Deco Jewelry) by C Weber-Stober. 2002. Notice the similarity of the triangular sections to the Bengel example.

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.

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.
