Vintage Nouveau Ruby Red Czech Glass Beaded Necklace ❤️ Neiger
Pretty Bohemian glass necklace in beautiful deep ruby red faceted lozenge bead chain attached to a central pendant with bezel set ruby red rhinestones, finished with a single dangly tear shaped glass stone set into brass from the bottom. The back is as pretty as the front, forming filigree design brass mount. The red glass beads of this period are highly desirable because red glass was the most expensive to make, due to the small amounts of gold necessary to achieve the vibrant red colour that makes them glisten like juicy pomegranate seeds. This is very likely to be an early unsigned Neiger piece made just after WW1.
- Brass barrel screw fastening.
- Length approx 15 inches.
Condition: Most of the beads are in excellent condition, a couple of the beads may have some light wear or nibbles which is naturally expected to the antique age of this amazing piece.
Vintage sizing is very different to modern day sizes, they usually are at least 2 sizes smaller depending on the era of manufacture. So to ensure a good fit please go by the measurements provided. I measure the garment laid flat edge to absolute edge then double, which give the maximum, you will need to measure your own clothes to compare sizing
