20's Chinese Export Coral & Hardstone Vermeil Necklace
Luscious Chinese export necklace circa 1920's, made from gold plated brass. Some of the gold has worn off. The color of the coral is a very deep salmon, and there are two angular beads dangling, framing an assortment of roughly rectangular semi precious hardstones such as quartz, carnelian, lapis and amethyst. The necklace measures 18" in length, each coral segment is 1/2" X 3/8". Marked China on the clasp. Definitely and early "tourist" piece.
