Art Deco Baltic Amber Bead Necklace 32.75"
A fabulous Baltic amber beaded necklace from the Art Deco (ca1920) era! This wonderful piece is comprised of gorgeous amber beads, which come together to form a long and bold strand. The oval-shaped beads graduate in size, exhibiting an opaque quality and wonderful golden hues, including variations of deep orange, rich brown, tobacco, and burnt sienna. Each amber bead is hand strung on knotted light orange thread and a decorative push clasp crafted in base metal can be found at the back, however, the generous length of the necklace allows it to easily slip on and off overhead. When worn, the necklace hangs at a generous length and could be paired with other beaded pieces for a layered look, or worn on its own as a special accessory!
Measurements: The overall length of the necklace measures approximately 32.75." The graduated beads vary in size, with the largest bead measuring approximately 20mm wide and 14mm tall. The smallest bead measures about 6mm wide and 5mm tall. In total, the beads have a weight of 41.3 grams.
Condition: The overall condition of the necklace is excellent. A few of the small amber beads have some chips, which is not uncommon for a piece of this age, and are not noticeable when worn. The remaining beads are all intact and securely strung. The push clasp is secure and in good working condition.
