Vintage 1920s Czech Art Deco Cameo Necklace Gold Gilt Russet Glass Pendant


This 1920s Czech Art Deco Cameo is a delight! Rich russet (orange-ish brown) glass has been skillfully molded in the likeness of Hera, the patron goddess of marriage & family. Her marriage to the ever "wandering" Zeus, made her queen of the gods...her diadem (or crown) are always present when she is depicted. The matte moulded glass likeness is breathtaking! The cameo has been mounted on an oval disc of polished glass of the same tone and mounted in a heavy gold gilt over brass frame and anchored in place with chevron shaped prongs. A chevron shaped bale suspends it from a fine gold filled chain with secure thumb ring clasp, appropriate to the era. Beautifully rendered, this is a well documented piece from the fabulous craftsmen of Czechoslovakia of the period.

Measurements: 2" long to the top of the ring, but not including the chevron bale. It is 1 3/8" wide. In profile, the piece is about 5/16" thick. The chain is 14 1/2" in wearable length, a common length of the period.

Condition: In very, very good vintage condition with only tiny fine scratches attesting to the gentlest of wear. The cameo is still crisp, with the edges of the moulded portrait well defined. The actual color is a bit more orange-ish brown than my photos indicate, which show a bit more red. There is a bit of discoloration to the back of the piece, though undetectable when worn or displayed. The chevron shaped bale may have been an early replacement. The thumb ring clasp works securely. The chain is an appropriate length, given the modist proportions of the women of the period, with the cameo being worn high on the neck.

Hallmarks: None found - the pendant is Czech in origin.

Circa: 1920s - Art Deco period
