This is perfect for spring and summer outings when you want to be noticed for being the one with the most distinctive piece of jewelry. This fascinating necklace is made up of glass, celluloid, ceramic and brass colored metal. It is probably French in origin and dates to the 1940’s.
It is large and showy and just dripping with celluloid leaves, ceramic and glass “fruit” and metal balls with bells inside. The colors are a sophisticated black, cream and purple and the purple glass sparkles brilliantly in the light. The ceramic fruit ranges in size from 14mm to 25mm so this is not for the faint of heart. You are wearing a piece of art!
The choker necklace measures 14”, dangles to a total of 18”and lies beautifully around the neck. It is in excellent vintage condition with no cracks or splits and guaranteed to be vintage.
