Fine Early Vintage Modernist Sterling Carnelian Necklace, Ne From Denmark:
Pictured below is an excellent vintage modernist necklace in sterling silver and carnelian (I believe), designed by Niels Erik From, Nakskov, Denmark, circa ‘50s. The piece features a clean, linear, minimal modern design, with long, curved cylindrical links, and a central descending loop set with a slightly curved cylinder of brick red carnelian stone. The sliding closure element is an oval, pellet shape. This is a substantial and weighty necklace – its quality and craftsmanship are excellent – with simple modern lines and nice presence when worn. I believe it’s an early example of the Danish modernist’s work and a seldom-seen design. I am listing the matching ring in a separate sale, so please see my other listings if you’re interested.
Measurements: The necklace measures about 15” in wearable length; the carnelian stone measures about 1” long.
Condition: The necklace is in excellent used vintage condition, with just light surface signs of age and wear, some darkened patina, but no detractors.
Marks: The piece is signed on the sliding closure element with early impressed marks, ‘N.E. From [in script], 925S, STERLING, DANMARK.’
