The ubiquitous vintage West German brass and glass necklace. So distinctive with it's characteristic brass filigree and chain stations, the West Germans often incorporated rhinestones, faux pearls and high quality anchor stones -- usually specialty glass cabochons, cameos, or transfer prints. In the pendant necklace presented, circa 1950s-1970s, a large oval glass simulated tiger's eye cab, richly striated in quartz stone fashion, takes center stage. Within the brass filigree base, brilliant topaz and citrine colored rhinestones and lustrous imitation seed pearls surround. Bilateral necklace chains feature oft used heart bail, two sided filigree station links, faux pearls, textured oval brass chain links, and spring ring clasp.
The necklace is a wearable length of about 24 inches. Bail and pendant drop an additional 2 3/4 inches. Pendant proper is approximately 2 inches x 1 5/8 inches with a 5/8 inch dome or profile. Oval tiger eye glass stone is about 30 millimeters x 20 millimeters; topaz rhinestones, 5 millimeters and citrine rhinestones, 4 millimeters. Weight of the necklace is 30.5 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components intact. Tiger eye stone free from chips, nicks, cracks or breaks. Wonderful striations, colors, and luster.
