This is a bright and cheerful – and very wearable – vintage Czech necklace of randomly-arranged multi-coloured glass beads, often referred to as “harlequin” beads. They are finished with fluted gold-tone bead caps, interspersed with black seed beads, also glass. Being handmade in the 1930s, possibly 1920s, the beads have slight variations in size and shape, and some original flaws – striping at the equators, a few specks of embedded grit, dimples and so on – typical in this type of bead.
It is a choker length necklace, securely strung with a basic brass bolt-ring clasp.
Dimensions: 40 cm long, including clasp (15.75″)
Condition: This vintage Czech necklace is in very good vintage condition with some original flaws as noted above, but no damage. The gold-tone beads caps are bright, with only slight signs of wear.
