If you are a lover of interesting and unusual vintage and antique jewelry, you've come to the right place. I try to keep a nice mix of fine and costume pieces that range in age from 19th century Victorian to late 20th century vintage designer couture. I have all sorts of wonderful pieces up for sale at the moment. Please be sure to browse ALL of the listings and check back often as I will be listing heavily over the next few weeks. Fresh from a fine Texas estate comes a most unusual and quite striking antique Chinese carved nut or pit bead necklace with painted clay bead accents. I believe these beads were most likely originally part of a Mandarin Court necklace. I have seen nearly identical painted clay beads and similar nut beads on Mandarin Court necklaces. The 10mm nut beads have tiny intricate scenes with figures carved into them(it must have taken a master carver to accomplish this). The painted or stained carved clay beads are quite unusual. The bottom bead is damaged and was sewn together with thread that matches the stain on the bead. The necklace measures approx 42" long with the pendant drop measuring approx 3 1/2" long x 5/8" wide. There are two areas of damage to the cord and I would not recommend wearing the piece as it is. The beads could either be re-strung or the cord could be repaired by a professional. Feel free to email me with any questions and please be sure to check out my other sales for more great pieces of vintage jewelry and many other interesting and unusual pieces of art deco, mid century modern, and hollywood regency design.
