The subtle blue hues of these artfully clustered shells range from water-pale to dusky cobalt and they seem to encircle the neck by magic, being suspended on a paperclip chain of transparent celluloid. The shells, BTW, are as intricately textured as real ones -- a delight to the touch, as well as the eye.
Besides being easy to admire, this necklace is easy to wear -- light as a feather -- and in amazing condition, given its age (circa 1930-1940) and the delicacy of celluloid. The only fault we've found are teensy pinholes at the backs of some shells, which are hard to notice and may have been integral to the process of fabricating such intricate shapes. Its length is 16.5 inches and it reached us from a West Coast estate.
This is a particularly good time to add a celluloid necklace to your collection, since formerly crazy prices have taken a pause. As you may remember, attractive examples were selling a few years ago for $300 to $600. Here's a fabulous deal made even better by our present sale price.
