Wonderful vintage necklace comprised of frosted clear glass beads that were African trade beads made in the Netherlands, black Raku beads with carved designs and old silver spacer beads that look like gears. It is an endless neckless meaning it is strung without a clasp.
There are eleven of the Dutch beads that are the frosted clear glass lantern beads that each measure around 24mm wide by 24.8mm long. There are 34 Raku beads, which approximately measure 11mm round. There are two oval banded silver beads that measure 14.6mm wide by 15.5mm long. The beads move freely on the double string; this necklace is not knotted.
Looks great worn over a black turtleneck as much as it does with a summer linen shift. Elegant vintage necklace.
