Outstanding and very collectable Art Deco electrifying blue foiled glass bead necklace. Even though these Murano beads are 100 years old, they have lost none of their iridescent shimmer and glow.
Each bead is unique from the other, the chubby rounded edge cube shaped blue beads have real silver leaf running through them, they are separated by clear glass spacer beads that are infused with real gold leaf. To add to the interest two clear glass diamond faceted flat beads sit between every spacer. A decorative brass screw clasp completes this gorgeous Venetian glass necklace.
At 16-3/4" (42cm) long the necklace sits at collar length and will always be visible lifting any outfit worn with a vibrant swath of tropical blue, this necklace is exquisite and sure to turn heads!
MEASUREMENTS: The blue foil beads graduate from 15x13mm for the largest centre bead to 7x5mm for the end beads.
WEIGHT: 32 grams
DATE: 1920s, Art Deco
CONDITION: Very good with the beads full of brilliance. Two of the centre beads have chipping to the edges, it is old damage that is worn smooth and not noticeable when worn due to the vibrancy and uniqueness of the beads. We have taken this into account when pricing, please see photos. We have also had the necklace restrung with white silk bead cord so there will be no problem with perishing, this antique necklace is good to go for another 100 years!
