One of the most impressive early Czechoslovakian necklaces we've seen. Amber / topaz glass beads and stones in myriad shapes and sizes including pipettes / cylinders, faceted barrels, rounds, squares, disks and a fantastic oval glass stone (unfoiled and open back). Brass work is equally as phenomenal including caps / crowns, box links, and intricate filigree pendant mount set with fine dentelle faceted glass stones, unfoiled glass squares and that marvelous bezel set faceted oval stone, all in topaz / amber shades. Graduated bead / pipette fringe dangles complement. A spring ring clasp secures.
The necklace is a wearable length of about 18 inches. The pendant portion is approximately 2 1/8 inches wide with the longest fringe dangling to 4 5/8 inches (from top of pendant). Barrel beads are about 28 millimeters x 6 millimeters; round beads, 5, 8, 9 and 12 millimeters; pipettes, 20 millimeters x 2 millimeters and center oval 23 millimeters x 12 millimeters. Weight of the necklace is 52 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. Please keep in mind that the necklace is 1920s-1930s vintage and will show some age appropriate wear, including patina and small pipette end chips (these are very fragile beads). Other stones and beads are free from chips, cracks or breaks. Wonderful warm topaz / amber colors. Brass patina intact. No polishing done. Possibly replaced vintage spring ring clasp and end ring are strong and secure. Clean. Excellent vintage.
The necklace is not signed. All the bells and whistles of work from Czechoslovakia, circa 1920s-1930s.
Early costume at it's best. Czech it out. At Cody's.
