I just bought this art deco necklace. It´s in machine age style and I´m pritty sure it´s from the 1930´s. It "feels" right in signs of wear, and in the details. It seams to be a chrome metall necklace. I´m not sure what the coral coloured beads are made of, they feel like glass or maybe a very hard plastic of some sort. It looks like the beads have been made out of two solid halves put together, but they don´t look moulded. Rather that two pieces of something hard that has meen fused or something to eachother. I´ve wondered about why you would make them like this? Maybe the company who made it also made similar models using half beads (I´ve seen a very similar necklace by Bengel with half beads) it would make sense to try and use them in more ways than one.
I would be surpriced if it was not made in Germany or France. But I am
very grateful for ideas/input on what material it could be in the beads and also if any one knows what company made this? Is it a Jacob Bengel necklace? It looks very well made and it's about 44 cm in lenght from clasp to clasp.
