Amazing vintage necklace with very big deeply carved Bakelite beads in apple juice and cherry amber color, strung on handknotted dark brown cord, with a brass spring ring clasp with a thumb catch. Circa 1935. Both the apple juice and cherry amber elements test positive for Bakelite. Guaranteed vintage and original. The center apple juice bead is 32 mm in diameter and the large cherry amber beads are 35 mm long. A stunning and unusual piece.

Wearable length is 21 1/2 inches and the center bead is 1 1/4 inches wide. Excellent condition. The cord is somewhat frayed at the clasp ends but could be easily repaired (I can have it repaired if you like); the clasp is currently secure. Photos enlarged to show detail.
