Fabulous very long French poured glass sautoir with thin dark goldtone metal chains and luscious glass beads simulating carved jewels in six colors: green, blue, cranberry, purple, topaz, and a beautiful dark pink tourmaline color I have not seen before in French jewelry. Circa 1950 or possibly earlier; the clasp is an early spring ring without the thumb tab. 60 inches long and just under 5/8 inch wide at the largest beads. The largest beads are 7/8 inch/24 millimeters long. Excellent condition. No chips or cracks, but a couple of the beads have open bubbles on the surface; pictured but not at all noticeable when worn. Photos enlarged to show detail. Display form is life size.
