This lovely old necklace or belt is comprises of lattice panel links with several hand cut bright white paste stones set in many of the panels with brass ring linkage. It was made during the late 1800s from pressed metal and set paste stones.
In good to fair condition, there is no breaks or missing pieces but much of the silver plate is worn. All the paste are lovely and present, , it measures 23" long and 2 1/2" high on the front filigree. The other links measures about 1 1/4" high. They are not often found anymore and is likely a highly collectible theatre costume jewel, which were de-accessed decades and decades ago when French theatre companies disbanded.
Likely French or possibly Czech in origin, it is unmarked, circa late 1800s
