CONDITION: excellent vintage/antique condition.There are no chipped or broken beads--there may be some minor nibbling on the beads but there is nothing that is not in line with theold vintageage of the beads.Theystill have a nice gloss and shine.This beautiful necklace came to us needing to be restrung. We have restrung it on nylon amber/red cord in the traditional manner, knotted in between beads.Because these are the very oldVenetian beads that have larger bead holes even though the nylon fills the holes a little better than the original silk cord you will find that the cord can bemoved back and forth a bit in the holes. Theoriginal vintage brassbead caps & barrel screw claspare in fine condition but they have developed a darkened patina, whichhappens over time.
MEASUREMENTS:the necklacemeasures end to endincluding the claspabout 17 3/4" long.Thelargest centerround millefiori bead measures 13mm's(about 1/2")in diameter and graduates backto the smallest beads that are about 8mm's in diameter. The necklace has a nice solidfeel to it and it weighs44.6 grams.
DETAILS:we estimate the beads to be from the 1920's to 1930's andthat they were handcrafted by Moretti artisans in Murano, Italy. These are the fine quality classic style millefiori beads that have been finished where the murrines meet so that they are perfectly smooth. The colors are rich, the designs of the murrines are exceptional and the beads still have a nice glossy finish.As with all handmade lamp work beads shapes will vary and there may be slight imperfections that are intrinsic to the way the beads were align="left" class="MsoNormal" style="margin: 0in 0in 10pt;">• Please email us if you have any questions.
