Fringed Victorian Cut Glass and Steel Beaded Collar Necklace Mantle

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

From the 19th century Guilded Age ready for the 21st Century. This handmade beaded net collar was meant to be worn then just as one would today, to add a drape of richness and sparkle to any ensemble. The beadwork is constructed very strong and there are only a few strings of fringe missing. This we are sure is not due to any thread rot. The majority of the steel beads maintain their original sparkle however in the name of full disclosure there are a few rust spots, please take note of the photos. Having over a century of a lifetime, there are sure to have been moments of poor handling which damaged this piece. Our atelier has detailed the beadwork and it is in strong and ready condition for wear as is or appropriated as you please.
