Measurements: Total Weight: 2.5 oz. - Large hollow bead: 2" diameter x 3/4" - Small hollow beads: 3/4" diameter - Full length: 20" - Opening: 24"
The larger, hollow beads are of copper with gold wire.
This simple and elegant vintage Chinese cloisonne necklace is in fine, undamaged condition. The largest bead shows a multi colored bird (rooster?) on one side and and multicolored dragon on the other. The two smaller beads show birds and flowers (with less detail).
I believe that the cord is woven silk.
The necklace can be lengthened or shortened by adjusting the various knots along the silk cord.
Purchased pre 1980 by an actress who traveled the world with a theatrical touring company - traveling, acting, and shopping.
