This beautiful vintage Cherry Amber Bakelite necklace was all the rage during the Art Deco in the 1920's and 1930's, and continues to be collectible today.
It's a graduated necklace with smooth spherical Amber Bakelite beads of a deep, rich cherry colour- hence the name, "Cherry Amber". The smooth beads are much rarer than the faceted variety, and this one is in fantastic vintage condition!
This necklace measures approximately 48cm or 19" long, so it's looks great day or night & is very versatile.
The Bakelite beads are separated with a knot between each one to keep them in top condition, and also for added security (much like Pearls). They measure approximately 15mm in diameter and each bead has it's own unique shape and character- giving this necklace that unique and authentic vintage charm!
