Outstanding collectible vintage necklace with a large apple juice prystal bakelite diamond shaped pendant having a reverse carved edelweiss flower. The long pale amber round link celluloid chain drops to a bulbous diamond shaped pendant. A fine edelweiss flower is carved from the back with the entire pendant having a screwed on black circle back accenting the flower. Very unique and a showstopper! An identical brooch is featured in the "Best of Bakelite" book, page 81.

The Edelweiss flower has since time immemorial been valued as medicine against the ailments of men and their beasts, as powerful Talisman to ward off evil and of course as the "Ultimate Love Charm" of the mountains.

Measurements: 24" chain with the pendant and drop adding an additional 3 1/4". The bakelite pendant alone measures 2"
Circa: 1950-1960
Condition: Excellent with no noted flaws Bakelite positive tested with Simichrome
