Vintage Cloisonne Necklace 40 Large Cobalt Egg Shape Beads - 33" long
Vintage Chinese Cloisonne Necklace made of large egg shaped cobalt beads strung on a knotted cotton or silk cord. There is a golden slide in type clasp made of filigree or mesh metal with a flower on top.
There are 40 beads in all. The 33" necklace is beautiful to wear as it is but I recommend restringing it - better safe than sorry.
The beads could be used in combination with other beads or other findings to create unique jewelry that you can make and sell.
Each bead is 6/8" long. Very nice large size.
Cloisonne is an ancient Chinese technique/style of copper or brass beads with enamel. The outline of the flowers in the design is created by soldering wire to the top of the brass/copper body of the bead before the enamel is applied.
Very good pre-owned condition without damage or repairs.
