Luscious grapes dangle in a cluster of color from the vine leaf in this magnificent '30s-'40s vintage art glass necklace in gilt brass. The pendant's rigid construction consists of the dimensional leaf with a web work of open back circular frames prong set with dentelle faceted chatons in amethyst, emerald green, and cornflower blue glass stones. All stones in this necklace are unfoiled / open back set dentelle (extra facets) chatons for premium color and brilliance. The vine leaf is suspended from a complimenting purple glass stone bail that is connected to bilateral brass link chains. Closure is via a complimenting amethyst colored push in box type clasp. Beautifully crafted with the finest materials and Czechoslovakian glass stones.
The necklace is a wearable fixed approximate 23 inches with push in box type clasp. The pendant with bail provides an additional 3 3/4 inches for a total length of about 26 3/4 inches. Pendant's maximum width is approximately 1 5/8 inches. Largest chatons are about 11 millimeters. The three small green glass stones are about 4 millimeters. Weight of the necklace is approximately 32 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components original and intact. All stones are free from chips, nicks, cracks or breaks with outstanding, clean facets yielding superior color and sparkle. Gilt brass has acquired a rich, warm patina with some expected wear to gilt finish. No polishing or abrasive cleaning has been done, as our buyers prefer, allowing patina to remain intact. All soldering secure. The round framework on the bottom stone has a slight bend, not affecting stone's security, condition or front appearance. Chain links secure. Clasp secure. Extremely clean. No repairs. Excellent vintage.
The necklace is not signed. It's stones, materials, construction, and overall presentation suggest a 1930s-1940s vintage. Czech influence.
