Outstanding vintage art deco parure. This signed Czech delicate foiled glass necklace and earrings parure features gorgeous green coloured foil glass beads and cabochon, small clear green beads, all linked with brass chain links. 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. The necklace has a central cabochon with three drops. The earrings have screw fittings with a clear rhinestone and a chain drop with a foiled capped glass bead.
The necklace has a brass spring ring clasp which is still in good condition and the ring is stamped Czechoslovakia. 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 was a very popular design in the 1920s.
This is in good vintage condition but many of the parts are extremely delicate and thin. This is not an everyday jewellery set but a very special occasion parure. Some of the metal (brass) is a bit tarnished, but this does not show when worn.
The necklace weighs only 4 grams. It measures 40 cm and sits very nicely around the neckline – the pendant hang is 5cm at it’s longest. The earrings measure 3.5 cm long. Presented in a beautiful satin drawstring bag.
