Very good (minor chips to some blue glass segments)
Cobalt-blue glass tubes and chrome balls dangle from this Art Deco fringe necklace. The chrome links have a Machine-Age feel. Possibly French, this piece has lots of movement! This chrome necklace, which closes with an old style spring-ring clasp, was part of my personal collection. I am reluctantly offering it to a new home.
Although it's unsigned, this 1930s Mauerwerk(brickwork) necklace has been well-documented as a JakobBengel piece. It features green and black enamel on chrome with an attractive link chain and a spring-ring clasp. This German Machine Age necklace is extremely flexible and can be worn on either side. Scroll down to see the same necklace in red and black.
An alternative to the chicklet, these square-cut glass emeralds are encased in silver-tone metal and are slightly graduated in size. This 1920s-1930s Art Deco choker features a decorative hidden tongue-in-groove clasp. This necklace was made for a slim neck, so please note the necklace length (14 1/2") and check your neck size before purchasing this piece. It looks great with my other emerald Art Deco pieces — scroll down to take a look.
Deep red glass beads, Russian-gold filigree beads and end caps, rhinestone rondelles, and a box clasp with rose montées comprise this opera-length 1950s classic by Miriam Haskell. This piece never goes out of style!
Gold-plated fretwork embellished with baguette-shaped diamanté form the center of this lovely 1950s snake chain necklace by Coro. A pear-shaped diamanté adorns the tail of the hook closure. This piece is another great example of the work Adolph Katz produced for Corocraft, Coro's high-end line. What's interesting is that this piece appears in an October 1, 1953 Vogue ad with the following copy: "excitingly beautiful as Paris by night ... Vendome by Coro". (Vendome later became another one of the company's high-end lines.)
