Art Deco French Melon Necklace


Lovely large well done French glass "melon" necklace in a beautiful emerald green. The machine age stamped metal beads are also quite stunning. The piece is strung on a twisted steel wire and finished with a push in style melon clasp. Unsigned. A variation of these french 1920s beads can be seen in red on the cover of the classic costume jewelry guide by Harrice Simons Miller, 1990. Width varies but the largest bead is about 1.45"L X 1"W.
