An all authentic 1920s-1930s vintage Art Deco necklace features square sugarloaf glass stones in a rich amber color within gilt brass bezel settings framed in fancy links. Embossed open work rectangular links add the geometric prospective so popular during the era. Crimped, ribbed connector bars secure. Closure is via the older thumb ring C clasp. Pendant portion consists of a honeycomb base, layered with an embossed plate mounted with a sugar load amber glass stone. Tiny rosettes adorn the pendant's top and bottom. A wide variety of these '20s-'30s necklaces, many fashioned in Czechoslovakia, found their way into European countries and the United States.
The necklace measures a wearable approximate 16 1/2 inches with spring ring clasp. The pendant portion contributes an additional 1 1/2 inches. Pendant width is about 1 inch. The largest sugar loaf stone is approximately 12 millimeters with a 9 millimeters profile or height. Weight of the necklace is approximately 34 grams.
Condition is very good / excellent vintage. All stones are original and intact. Wonderful amber color with some subtle variable color changes. A bit of orange, honey and even some violet here and there. Wonderful luminescence. There is one tiny chip in the corner of the large pendant stone. About 1/32 inch x 1/32 inch chip in the very corner of the bezel setting. Very insignificant. No other issues with stones. Some of the gilt finish remains on the brass base metal. Much of it has worn, as expected, yet traces remain. There also is a patina that has developed over the many years. No abrasive cleaning or polishing has been done -- an option left to the discretion of the buyer. All links secure. No dents or improper bends. Original clasp is a bit sticky from age. Checking thumb ring will ensure it is fully closed and secure. All authentic / genuine 1920s-1930s vintage.
