19 1/2 inches long (doubled).
Classic Art Deco sautoir, long necklace, worn around the neck, accross the shoulders or any other variation of the flapper era. Made of tiny beads and combining
simple black faceted strands in 5 parallel lines, with tightly threaded panels on silver bead grounds. Panels with red and green flowers/foliage and a beautiful blue
bird on the largest, bottom panel. The bottom panel with looped fringe in an exquisite delicate violet/pink with red and black detail to pick up the colours of the
rest of the beads. The beads themselves are faceted in order to catch and reflect light and are of a superior quality. The artwork is beautiful and the colour
combination highly desireable and wearable. This is a great instance of an antique jewel retaining it's Wow appeal over 100 years.
Good, original condition.
