Art Deco Hand Blown Amber Manganese glass vintage necklace
This antique necklace is a stunning piece. It has been repaired and restrung. Originally this necklace would have been on silk but due to decay of silk over time it has been restrung with wire for durability. Each bead has been hand blown and you can see the originality of each bead as it may vary slightly from the next through they have a graduated pattern and faceted dimension. The deep amber beads are accented with a deep golden yellow bead slightly larger and more robust. Manganese is identified in antique glass by the orange color under UV light. The small beads glow a dull brown where the larger beads have a lot more orange to them. Necklace is in good wearable condition with little signs of wear.
