Cherry Amber 1930s Bakelite Bead Necklace
A charming bead necklace from the 1930's, made up of 32 cherry amber bakelite beads. The beads are phenolic resin Bakelite, one of the first plastics, a heat resistant and vintage collectible item. The necklace is a fantastic item- with original clasp and original beads- but it has recently been restrung with red silk, which sets off the beads nicely. The clasp is 14 karat yellow gold and works perfectly. It is unmarked but has been acid tested. The beads are approximately 3/8 of an inch in size. They are shiny and have a lovely amber color with a deep red hue. The necklace is approximately 18 inches around. This necklace is great for an everyday vintage look. In great vintage condition.
