Vtg 1920's Art Nouveau Deco French Sautoir Chrysoprase Glass Tassel Necklace:
Vtg 1920's Art Nouveau Deco French Sautoir Chrysoprase Glass Tassel Necklace This sale is for a striking and uniquely designed, Art Deco Chrysoprase glass sautoir necklace, that is from the 1920's - 30's.This piece is brass and glass but has a substantial weight and feel and is finely made. The necklace closes securely with its original barrel clasp that is marked "Made in France". This piece measures 27 1/2" long with the pendant and tassels dropping another 4 1/4" below that. The glass beads along the chain are a bit fuller than 3/8" in diameter. This piece is unique for its size and for the amount of detail to the design with a wide variety in sizes and shapes of green glass beads that are made to simulate Chrysoprase or perhaps on this piece Jade. The necklace has striking brass pendants with interesting shapes and filigree designs that contrast nicely with the green glass and give the necklace a lot of texture and visual interest. The tassels at the bottom are of a very fine ropy mesh chain that gives the necklace a subtle amount of movement and sway when worn. It looks like there is one tassel that has two missing glass beads and spacer beads but the rest of the tassels are intact. There is a little bit of wear and kinking to the mesh but it is a modest amount and most of the mesh strands are intact and secure. There is one section at the top of the pendant where it looks like it was repaired - my guess is that there were two strands of beads originally and now there is only one, plus there is a little wire that sticks out just a bit where a repair was made. Having said that the pendant is secure and the repairs are noticeable (there is a tiny bit of solder at the top as well) only upon close inspection. There are no marcasites missing on the pendant and the brass setting has a nice patina with very little darkening or discoloration. The glass beads are smooth with a high sheen and don't have any chipping or surface wear. Overall this is a striking and uniquely designed, Art Deco Chrysoprase glass sautoir necklace, that is from the 1920's - 30's that is in very good condition.
