Coco Chanel Gripoix Poured Glass Flower Faux Turquoise and Ruby Necklace

About

This special RARE and magnificent early statement necklace by Coco Chanel is simply put, among the rarest and most magnificent pieces of jewelry to ever cross this lifelong dealer's path. Constructed of inverted descending pendant flower clusters comprised of intricately set poured glass GRIPOIX bellflowers alternating with faux ruby poured glass GRIPOIX beadwork to create cascading racemes of wisteria-like bracts of bicolor (two exquisite shades of aquamarine) turquoise and cranberry flowers. The whole necklace is a meshwork of antiqued goldtoned metal with set cabochons around the neck with a multitude of assembled floral drops which are 1 inch long at the shortest point and 3.5 inches at the central decollatage longest point. The length of necklace is 15.5 inches of decorated stonework in the primary section, 1.5 inches of chainwork extension and a 1.25 inch decorative pendant back drop beneath the actual hook closure. EARLIEST CHANEL PIECES ARE NOT MARKED WITH THE MAKERS NAME. Pieces from 1921-1939 were made to complement Chanel's clothing. As a result, these extremely rare pieces were left unmarked. In 1939, due to WWII, The House of Chanel stopped operations. All hardware is original and the signature FRANCE is located on the reverse side of this hook. It is visible in Image 6, although the mark is so so small, it is hard to capture extremely clearly. Total length of necklace is 17.25 inches with an additional 1.25 inch drop for ultra glamorous back interest. A VERY special necklace, indeed. Take NOTE of new ON SALE PRICE!
