Vintage 1920s Art Deco Czech Vaseline Crackle Glass Beaded Choker

27.95 GBP
This is a very beautiful necklace in pretty white opalescent Czech crackle glass bicone shaped beads which are interspersed with faceted black glass beads and tiny gilded brass beadcaps. Circa 1920's
This item came to me on the original stringing material but it had stretched over time, therefore would probably break at some point in the near future so I carefully took the necklace apart and put it back together again exactly as it was, replacing the stringing material with specialist beading wire to make the necklace more secure, and also added thread protectors to prevent wear around the clasp. The clasp is the original bolt ring clasp and is in good working order, the ring is stamped Made in Czechoslovakia. As can be seen in the photographs, one of the beads has a slightly denser colour than the others - the price has been reduced to reflect this. 
The necklace measures approximately  38 cm. ( 15 ins. ) so it is a short length and sits at the hollow of the neck which was fashionable at the time. . The largest central bead measures 18 mm.
Please see all photographs for close ups, other views and packaging examples.

This would be a wonderful gift for someone special and is a lovely example of Czech glass costume jewellery for a collector !
