Elegant Art Deco Silver Necklace by Harry Iskin c1940s.

This Pretty Feminine Necklace features an Elegant Art Deco Era Stylised Geometric design of a Flower in an Elegant Garland Motif that measures approximately 1 1/2" inches (40mms) diameter.

The central Garland Motif is suspended from two stylised kidney shaped links typical of the abstract shapes that were popular in the Art Deco Era. The necklace is articulated in three sections to allow it to rest gracefully on the neck. Each part of the necklace is set with a large Ruby Red Paste Stone that is a deep Scarlet Red much more vibrant Scarlet red than it looks in the photos.

The focal point of the necklace measures approximately 3 "inches with 1 1/2" inches drop and is suspended from a Fine Quality Sterling Silver Curb Chain that is approximately 1/4" inch wide and heavy quality.

The total length of the necklace is approximately 16" inches (41cms) designed to be worn high on the neck as was the fashion of the era, however, it could easily be lengthened by the additon of a small extender chain to the reverse if a longer neck length was required.

The necklace is signed on a small plaque to the reverse with the monogram 'HI' for Harry Iskin. Harry Iskin was born in England in 1886 he became a US Citizen in 1908 and worked in Philadelphia, his premises based the West Side of Manhattan with an additional location in New York.
