Material:  Faceted crystal

Size:    Length ~ 30 inches total
           Bead size ~ Graduated 7mm  to 17mm
Quantity:  1 necklace

A rare find...long old, c. 1910 - 30 clear crystal necklace,with hand knotted highly faceted wheel shape beads that graduate in size from 7 mm to an amazing 17 mm.  There are 98 sparkly beads in all. (counted twice!)


The beads, which we believe to be rock crystal, appear to be strung on some type of very clean creamy white silky cord, or heavy string, no clasp.


The necklace is in extremely nice condition.  I examined the beads several times with a magnifying glass and I did not see any chips or damage.  There may be a minute flea bite I missed, but I honestly did not see a single one.  Even the edges of the facets appear quite crisp, with little to no wear.   These beads are in amazing condition.


The faceted beads really reflect the light and sparkle well, but this was hard to capture with the camera. The cording appears to be very strong and is really clean and white, so either the necklace was seldom worn, or possibly re-stung at some point.


Due to the high quality of these antique/vintage beads we believe they are likely Austrian or Czechoslovakian.


This shape of faceted wheel cut bead is rather hard to find, and an entire old 30 inch graduated necklace is really rather unique and rare.
