VERY GOOD: This beautiful Cherry Amber necklace is in excellent condition for its age, and a real joy to wear. The beads are in excellent condition, no breaks or chips along it's length and the Bakelite is clear and glowing throughout. The beads are strung on securely on cord and the cord is quite thick so will be safe to wear as it is for a long while. Considering this cord is probably over 90 years old you might want to re-string for extra piece of mind if you intend to wear it daily (or for vigorous tap-dancing!). The only minor imperfection is there's a small chip to the clasp, nearest to the screw, but you can't really see this when it's worn and it's still nice and strong.
