My mission is for you to receive good quality vintage costume jewelry that I would wear myself. Condition will always be good to excellent unless it is a rare item worth repairing and I will clearly state that in my description. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at anytime. Truly beautiful art deco, antique Bakelite beaded necklace, circa 1920s - 1930s. The color is a deep, dark cherry red.
Strung with large oval beads, graduating in size, the largest bead at the bottom being a little over 1 across. It measures 35 from one end to the other, and weighs 72.1 grams.
It does have a celluloid barrel clasp, but can easily be slipped over one's head to be worn. I don't normally show a picture of myself, ever, but I just needed to show you how wonderful it looks when worn. What I love about this piece the most is that it an actual old necklace make of genuine Bakelite Phenolic Resin. And if you collect Bakelite you know what I'm talking about. Guaranteed to be vintage bakelite, passing both simichrome and rub test, where you create heat with your thumb and you can easily smell that unmistakable phenolic odor.
In amazing condition and would accentuate many outfits. It definitely does not go unnoticed when worn. This quality piece if vintage costume jewelry would make a great addition to your collection. Thanks so much for visiting my auctions! Please add me to your favorite sellers.
