Outstanding vintage necklace. This Czech delicate foiled glass necklace features gorgeous gold/amber coloured foil glass beads, small bicone glass cut crystal beads, metal filigree beads all linked with brass chain links. Some of the foil beads have filigree metal caps and some have black glass spacer beads. the foil beads really shine from within and have a lovey vintage feel. The quality of the glass really makes this necklace the treasure that it is.
It has a brass spring ring clasp which is still in good condition. Foiled glass was made in the Gablonz region from the end of the 19th Century by adding an inclusion of silver foil within the coloured glass. This necklace probably dates from the 1920s or 30s.
The necklace weighs 12 grams. It measures 42 cm and sits very nicely around the neckline. Presented in a beautiful satin drawstring bag.
