Vintage Art Deco Venetian Glass Necklace, Beaded, Flapper, End of Day, Multicolor Glass, Wired, 1920's, Absolutely Fabulous! #b481
I present today this fantastic Art Deco Venetian glass beaded necklace!
This breathtaking necklace features multicolor Venetian glass beads in an absolute riot of colors! The beads have been wired together in a continuous strand, and alternate between sections of small round glass beads and fabulous long, cone shaped glass beads. The long beads have different base colors with rainbows of different colors running through them. These necklaces were worn in the 20's with the flapper garb that was all the rage. It's most likely and "end of day" piece constructed with all the different colors of beads left at the end of the day. It's so colorful and amazingly beautiful!
The necklace measures about 50 inches long, and is a continuous strand without a clasp. The long beads measure about 1 inch in length.
I love all of the different colors in this gorgeous necklace! Since it is so colorful, it would complement a variety of outfits! It can be worn as a very long strand or doubled up at the neckline as a two-strand necklace (see photo #2). The necklace is in excellent condition for its age. There is patina/darkening to the wires from age and since it was hand wired, there is variation to the loops and twists. I did detect one small chip to one bead that is hardly noticeable and mentioned for listing accuracy (see photo #5). None of the aforementioned detracts from the beauty of this delightful piece!
