Vintage 1950s Fruit Salad Necklace Lucite Celluloid Tutti Frutti Carmen Miranda:
Vintage c1950s fruit salad / tutti frutti three-row 'Carmen Miranda' necklace. It is not marked with country of origin but I am fairly certain that this was made in West Germany as I have had very similar necklaces which had the W.Germany mark on the hook clasp. The beads are made from a variety of plastic types including 'crackle' lucite and celluloid. The necklace is in good vintage condition with bright gold-tone end fittings. The hook clasp is a dull brass colour so this has either worn more quickly or is a replacement.
The necklace has an adjustable wearable length of between approx 15.5 inches and 17 inches (along the shortest strand including the extender chain). The large orange crackle lucite bead in the centre is approx 3/4 inch long x just over 1/2 inch wide. The long orange plastic linking beads are approx 1.25 inches long x 1/4 inch wide.
Please message me if you have any questions. I also have a listing this week of a multi-colour pair of W. Germany clip-on hoop earrings which would match this necklace well if you would like the full retro summer carnival look. I am happy to combine postage for multiple purchases but would appreciate payment of the total amount due within 7 days of your first winning offer.
Thank you for looking.
