1920s Emerald Green Art Deco Czechoslovakian Mirror Glass Vintage Necklace

Shimmering and delicate, this necklace dates from the 1920s.

Condition Report:

Very Good - Some rubbing to the base metal, a tiny chip to the edge of one panel (only really apparent to touch), some slight darkening to a couple of panels. These details do not detract from  the overall appeal of the piece and are consistent with age.

The Details...

This base metal necklace features multi-faceted, green mirror glass circular panels along its lenth. They are linked together and claw set. The necklace fastens with a bolt ring. The necklace is 39cm in length. It was made in Czechoslovakia, which appears to be stamped onto the outer edge of the necklace's fastening ring. 

A Short History...

Glass has been a prevelant feature of costume pieces since the invention of jewellery. An easily accessible material that can be formed into any shape and dyed any colour. Glass was heavily used in 1920s and 1930s pieces, such as this bracelet, because it could be dyed in a vast array of colours to meet the need for affordable jewellery after the Great War and the Depression. This necklace is made from highly sought after mirror glass, which was commonly produced in Czechoslovakia during the Art Deco era and molded in different shapes with a silvered backing.  

Wear it With...

This bracelet is perfect for evening wear -  it would look beautiful with a little black dress.It would add a pop of colour to casual looks too - pair with a green silk shirt.
