RARE Antique Venetian FIRE OPAL Art Glass & Root Beer BAKELITE Bead Necklace
Offered Here is a truly phenomenal antique Art Deco Era Beaded Necklace. This necklace measures 35 in total length and is composed of Huge Root Beer Bakelite beads with graduated Venetian Fire Opal Art Glass Beads. There are 27 of the very large Bakelite beads and the color is like a dark Carnelian Amber. These beads are slightly oval and measure 7/8" by 3/4" or 18mm in diameter.
(I have shown several photos with a Dime coin for size reference) The Venetian Art Glass beads are graduated in size. This necklace weighs 183 grams or 6 1/2 ounces. There is no clasp on the necklace and there are four of the huge Bakelite beads without spacers.
I would personally have this restrung before wearing. Please view the photos to further aid in description and if you need additional photos or information just ask.
