This Renoir Copper Necklace is from the mid century designer's Grecian line of jewelry, and a wonderful example of vintage Modernist style. The shiny copper rectangular frame elements have a cut-out center showcasing a repeating wire work pattern, and are linked together. The links are 3/4 inch x 5/8 inch. The necklace has its signature chain and hook clasp on one end, and chain extension on the other. This allows the necklace to be worn at a short collar length of 16 inches, adjustable to 20-1/4 inches. The oval top of the clasp shows the copyright symbol and Renoir in script, indicating the necklace dates to post 1954 .
Very good vintage condition, with some wear to the shiny surface and expected tarnish on the back, but no verdigris.
