ART DECO 'CARVED GLASS'FLOWERS NECKLACE

This delicate necklace is made up of 3 panels of 'carved glass' flowers.  These are not, of course, carved glass - but have been moulded to look like carved pieces of real stones - copying the work of Jewellers such as Cartier.  It is on a fine, white metal, chain.  It has open backed glass stones in between. It is amazing that it has survived for about 80 years undamaged!  It is currently in my shop at Vintage Modes, Grays Antiques - very near Bond Street tube station in central London.  I have a good selection of vintage jewellery and vintage costume jewellery in my shop and am always adding new stock.  I love Art Deco and always try to have a selection of interesting pieces - brooches, dress clips, necklaces, earrings - and also a variety of small collectibles - such as compacts, hair combs, powder boxes etc.  The necklace is £128 and the reference is 2255 B88/5 - further details on my web site - www.gillianhorsup.com
