Chanel Gold Leaf Bib with Tooth Pearls, Workshop: Goossens
Important and exquisitely articulated collar which is completely handmade by Goossens for Chanel. Here Chanel's favorite fox chain has been transformed into a myriad of hand made leaves sprinkled with gold balls, pastes and faux tooth pearls. These unusual handmade glass pearls are also a favorite detail used frequently in Chanel's brooches. Imposing collar, amazing and timeless.
16.75" length. Necklace Drop: 2.25"
