The pendant is deeply carved and the beads handcrafted, each differs slightly in size and shape. It comes in this vintage hard metal necklace case that could very well be original to it.
The 10mm beads are hand knotted on the original cord and the necklace measures 30" long with the pendant measuring 3.75" including the carved bale and 2" wide. Fastens with a push in fish hook clasp. Condition is excellent. A one of a kind magnificent and stately gothic "mourning" necklace and a fabulous example of Art Deco statement jewelry!
