The Details...

This necklace is constructed from chrome plated metal. The necklace features discs of increasing size. Each disc features a grey Galalith stripe, so that the discs resemble a cat's eye. The necklace fastens with a bolt ring and measures 40cm in length.

A Short History...

This piece does not bear a signature. All of Jakob Bengel jewellery was unsigned. However, his pieces possess distinctive hallmarks which make this necklace readily identifiable as Bengel. The chromium plating used in the necklace is typical of the company's 1930s pieces. The use of Galalith also means this is certainly by Jakob Bengel.
