  A Rare and Unusual Necklace – Perfect For a Collector or to Wear and Enjoy!


Would make a GORGEOUS GIFT!


A beautiful antique Art Deco butterscotch amber/orange opalescent swirl poured/pressed glass beads necklace.  The beads are simply fabulous – they are UV light reactive, not quite as bright as many, but they do have a definite pink fluorescence.  This is due to the trace heavy metal content: most likely cadmium and manganese (which is totally harmless by the way).


 They also have a wonderful glowing effect when they catch the light, as well as gorgeous swirls – please see the photographs with a bright light behind.  They are wonderfully chunky to the centre of the necklace.  The beads were all made by hand in the historic Kingdom of Bohemia.


The beads are in wonderful condition, with no damage that I can find.  The necklace is threaded on the original twisted metal wire, making it good and strong.  This was usually only reserved for gemstones.  The only thing worth mentioning is that the wire has a slight kink due to its age, but you certainly don’t notice this when the necklace is being worn. It fastens with the original screw barrel clasp.  Rare and Highly Sought After.


Measures: 16″ or 41cm


The largest central bead measures: 19.3mm


Looks Absolutely Stunning When It Catches The Light!


In Excellent Original Antique Condition.
