Czech Art Deco Blue Step Faceted & Swirl Cased Glass Bead Necklace 17"
Here's a very nice Art Deco Step Glass necklace marked Czechoslovakia on the clasp split jump ring.
The centerpiece features 4 fancy cut step glass open back unfoiled stones that are prong set. Below there are tiny brass teardrop dangles. The longer tapered beads are swirled with a twist and the round beads are lightly faceted. Both types of beads have white glass casing inside so the wire does not show that passes through it. Necklace measures 17" long. The centerpiece is about 2-1/8 x 1". Has overall lovely patina to the brass metal. On the centerpiece there is a chip on the bottom left corner. Difficult to notice because it's beveled there to start with. My camera did not pick up the true deep blue of the centerpiece. Closer to a shade of cobalt blue but a bit lighter. Amazing vintage piece!
