This is a smashing Sterling Silver necklace that dates from the 1940's/50's. It is crafted from Sterling Silver and purple art glass. The condition of this piece is amazing. It is meant to be worn as a collar necklace and hugs the neck perfectly. Each link is solid and heavy in composition. They feature a three dimensional design which is perfectly duplicate around the entire necklace. There are 13 links in total which are each soldiered to one another by eye loops. This allows the necklace to lay around the neck to perfection. This necklace is extremely well made, though unsigned or hallmarked, we did test it as Sterling Silver with out a doubt. Back in the 40's/50's it was not uncommon to coat Sterling silver so that it would appear to never tarnish. Well, after time this coating diminishes as in this case there is still slight evidence of the coating. The patina is fabulous on this necklace. It possesses its original spring C clasp with two additions of jump ring on either side to add length to this necklace. It is possible to lengthen a bit more with additional jump rings or perhaps shorten by removing the modern additions.
