Authentic 1920s - 1930s Art Deco necklace. Most likely Czechoslovakian. Glass molding and faceting are superb in a rich butterscotch topaz color. Bilateral strands of graduated, faceted butterscotch topaz colored beads are secured via spring ring closure. Near the bottom are three horizontally placed molded glass barrel beads with the largest in center. These beads are beautifully ribbed with deeply incised slices extending the entire length of beads with faceted end cuts as well. Around the center of each of these beads is a pierced brass tone band. From each of these beads a dangle is suspended with round faceted beads culminating in a vertical barrel bead, the two on each end, sans banding. The longest center dangle includes the brass tone banding on the barrel bead. The epitome of Deco design. Crafted with excellent glass bead work accented with period brass tone findings.
The necklace measures an approximate wearable 18 inches long. The longest center dangles an additional 2 3/4 inches for a total of 20 3/4 inches. The largest barrel bead is about 5/8 inch x 7/16 inch -- 17 millimeters x 10 millimeters. Largest round beads, approximately 8 millimeters. Weight of the necklace is about 32 grams.
Condition of the necklace is excellent vintage. The center glass dangle barrel bead has a tiny flea bite or two on the edge facets. It is difficult to capture in a photo and not apparent when worn. All wiring appears secure. Clasp secure. Extremely clean. Excellent vintage. Circa 1920s-1930s.
The necklace is not signed. Very likely Czechoslovakian.
