This is a really fabulous vintage/antique necklace dating from 1910-20's.

It has exquisite pieces of Italian micro mosaic glass tessarae set into brass and linked togther to make this beautiful festoon necklace. It is multi coloured and lot of the glass canes are actually tiny flowers. The chain of the necklace is original to the piece and finished with a boltring clasp.
It would have been made for the tourist market of the 1920's when wealthy aristocrats did the Grand Tour taking in all the cultural sites and sounds of Europe.

The condition of this antique necklace is excellent with a soft patina to the brass. There is only a small blob of lead solder on the back of one of the dangles which indicates an age old repair that is still very secure and one very tiny piece of tessarae out of one of the circles above the pink teardrop shape on the left side. Neither of these small issues detracts at all and are hardly detectable :-)

The wearing length is 15ins and the centre dangle is 3/4ins diameter.
