Reflecting Jerry Fels fascination with American Indian jewelry, "Honeybear", a modernist interpretation of a bear paw print, was introduced by Matisse / Renoir in the 1950s-'60s. As fresh and fashionable as when created, the sleek, fluted copper links house bright red enamel disks in this incredible collar style necklace. As at home with denim or dress, the necklace embodies the best of what Matisse was all about -- incorporating color and copper into one striking statement. The necklace can be seen on pages 133 and 136 of "Copper A Different Lustre" by Burkholz and Kaplan.

The necklace is adjustable to about 18 1/2 inches with charmed extension chain and hook style closure. The disks, each about 1 inch x 1/2 inch, span the entire length of the necklace, san extension chain, for uninterrupted coverage. Weight of the necklace is approximately 54 grams.

Condition is excellent / pristine vintage. All components original and intact. All copper retains finish and gorgeous, age appropriate patina. No polishing has been done. No dents or improper bends. All enamel disks intact with even, bold red color. No chips, nicks, or cracks to enamel. Great luster / sheen. No damage / no repairs. Pristine vintage.

The necklace is signed on it's original hook: "Matisse" in familiar script with copyright symbol preceding.
