Vintage Cherry Amber Bakelite Necklace
This is a lovely vintage faceted Cherry Amber Bakelite necklace from the 1920s. The graduated beads are separated by metal bead spacers. The necklace also has a classic gold filled hook and eye clasp. The beads have a nice translucence and a beautiful garnet-esque, red hue. The smallest bead is 8 mm by 6 mm and the largest measures 22 mm by 18 mm. The 31 1/2 inch strand weighs approximately 35 grams. Although there is a small age crack in the largest centre bead, which is to be expected with how old the piece is, this 1920s necklace is in very good condition. The beads have been tested and are guaranteed to be Art Deco Era, phenolic resin Bakelite.
