Offered for sale is a lovely camphor glass necklace. It is vintage approximately 1940s, though it could be older. It is difficult to tell, due to the excellent condition that it is in and the design around the frame. However, it is not modern by any stretch of the imagination.

The pendant is an oval camphor glass with the characteristic lines radiating outward from the center which is set with four tiny faux pearls in white. The camphor glass oval is surrounded by a gold-plated bezel setting, which in turn is surrounded by a fancy, open-work, filigree-like, gold-plated frame, solid on the edge with a textured design. The pendant has a top loop and hangs on a bail, which appears not to be original to the piece.

The pendant hangs on a 19" fine, gold-washed or plated chain. The chain is much older than the pendant, approximate vintage 1910 to 1920s. When found, there was no chain, and thus one has been provided from this seller's collection, with an attempt to match the yellow color of the gold. The chain has an early round, spring-ring clasp.

The pendant is 1 5/8" tall and 1 1/4" wide. The camphor glass portion is 1 1/8" tall and the pearls in the center are 2mm. The chain links are 2mm as well.

The necklace -- pendant and chain -- are in excellent condition. There are no flakes, chips or cracks in the camphor glass, no staining or discoloration, no bends or deformation in the setting or frame, no damage to any of the links in the chain.

This lovely necklace would make a wonderful addition to a vintage collection.
