1920's Seed Bead Flapper Belt/Sautoir Necklace. Art Deco.


Simply gorgeous woven Art Deco seed bead piece of the highest quality that can be worn in so many ways! It's great as a belt either doubled over at the waist or worn low slung in a single knot. As a necklace is works both as a long sautoir or wrapped several times around for a shorter look. This piece is so just so versatile. The beadwork is just amazingly intricate. The tiniest seed beads are woven in an art deco palette of pale jade green, iridescent grey, and cranberry red. The necklace ends in two wonderful flapper style tassels each decorated with a handmade Venetian bead. Excellent condition and very strong which is so rare for a piece this age. Dating from the 1920's. Probably French in origin. An incredible 72 inches in length! Over 1 inch wide.
