Emerald green glass and paste necklace, French 1920s


A magnificent long beaded necklace, made from 'doughnut' shaped emerald green glass discs, faceted clear glass rings, of two sizes, and clear paste clusters. With an engraved barrel clasp to the rear (marked 'Made in France'), the emerald discs form a single row, widening out into a double row, with the clear rings and paste clusters on the outer edge, the emerald beads sitting on the inner side, creating a most unique and unusual design. A very rare and individual model of those made in France at this time. A similar necklace appears on page 119 of 'Jewels Of Fantasy: Costume Jewellery of the 20th Century', edited by Deanna Farnetti Cera.
