Shield yourself with this 1940s vintage necklace featuring a massive medallion accented with multi colored cup set, glass chaton rhinestones and a larger prong set red molded plastic center chaton. Medallion and bilateral station embellishments include fleur de lis details, domed rosette coils, and flower blossoms. Link chains are secured with a locking tab closure.
The necklace has a wearable length of about 19 inches. Center medallion is a generous 2 1/2 inches x 2 3/8 inches with a 7/16 inch profile or thickness. Center faceted red stone is approximately 11 millimeters. It is unfoiled and open back set. Weight of the necklace is about 48 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components intact. All rhinestones intact, retaining color and sparkle. Smaller chatons are glass, while center stone is molded red plastic, characteristic of the period. Layered metal component intact. No dents, improper bends, crush or collapse. Phenomenal casting and dimension. All connections and chain links secure. Clasp secure. Extremely clean. No damage / no repairs. Excellent vintage.
The necklace is not signed. Interestingly, the tiny flower blossom embellishments on the front of the medallion and bilateral stations are also used on the reverse of the medallion -- possibly a maker's mark. Design, materials, construction and overall presentation suggest a late 1930s-early 1940s vintage.
Shield yourself with the mighty medallion neck piece. The power and glory. At Cody's.
