Beautiful Art deco vintage necklace from the 1930s. This Neiger blue glass necklace is not signed but is one of the classic ‘heavy filigree’ Neiger brothers designs. This necklace has chrome metal links with a strong spring ring clasp. Between each link are melon beads made of blue glass melon beads each with the filigree cap.
The overall effect is very light and dainty and the necklace is in excellent vintage condition. The metal is in great condition for its age and still has a lovely silver shine. It hangs around the neckline really nicely. See the photos of our model Eve to see what we mean.
The necklace is light and weighs just 17 grams. It measures 40 cm. Presented in a beautiful satin drawstring bag.
The most sought after jewellery produced in Gablonz was produced by the Neiger Brothers whose fine workmanship led the way for many of the Gurtler metalsmiths in Bohemia/ Czechoslovakia.
Max & Norbert Neiger were brothers who began making jewellery in 1900 and expanded to become world famous. They did not sign the jewellery and were copied a lot so many vintage sellers wrongly attribute designs to the Neigers. There are recognisable features of their work – not least the level of craftsmanship and quality of genuine Neiger pieces.
