Although it’s unsigned, this 1930s Mauerwerk (brickwork) necklace has been well documented as a piece by Jakob Bengel. It features red and black enamel on chrome with an attractive link chain and a spring-ring clasp. This Machine Age necklace is extremely flexible and can be worn on either side. This piece is from my personal collection. Scroll down to see a red and black enamel bracelet by the same maker as well as the same necklace in green and black.
