This is a Wonderful Beaded Necklace with an Asian Flair. There are an Assortment of Beads, many quite Large and Chunky. At Center is a Blue & White Chinese Porcelain Bead, there are also Porcelain Beads in Turquoise Blue with Pink and White Flowers, little Orange Flowers, and Green Leaves in Chinese Style. There are 2 Rounded Brass Netted Beads that remind me of the old Japanese Fishing Floats. There are 2 Large Faceted Beads with Fancy Brass End Caps; they look like Crystal, but feel like Lucite. There are 2 Cloisonne Enamel Beads in Cobalt with Pink Flowers and Green Leaves and Gold. The End Beads which are the palest pinkish lavender glass beads have very fancy brass end caps in the Czech style. The Brass/gold tone chain is also in the Czech style.
The Necklace measures 20 1/2" to the end; 18" if you latch it to the last of the large loops. The Crystal looking beads measure 1" x 3/4" across, the Turquoise and Pink Porcelain Beads measure 1" across. The Necklace has a Lobster claw catch; it is unmarked; possibly Vintage Artisan Made. I believe it is from the 1970's. It is in Very Good Condition. Tiny, no see Flake at side opening of Blue & white bead where it comes together with next bead(it is not visible). This is a Very Unusual looking Necklace!
