Art Nouveau Czech art glass and brass necklace Glorious peacock colors
This pendant dates in the early 20's and is made of solid brass and paste rhinestones. The center piece is art glass from the Czech republic and is bezel set. The heavy pendant is all original with all the original settings. I loved the peacock colors of blues and purples so I added the blue and purple czech glass beads that are nestled in vintage brass filigree bead caps. This forms a 20" chain with a signed made in czechoslovakia clasp that has a faceted blue chalcedony stone in it. IT is hard to see it the photos but this magnificent pendant draws from the alternating glass beads of purple and blue in the neck chain. I doubt these were mass produced so you will probably never see another like it. IT is a truly fabulous piece!
