I have had this for so long, I don't remember where it came from. I think it belonged to my grandmother. I'm trying to identify the vintage and the plastic. I know it's not bakelite because it makes a high-note snippy click when I lightly tap the beads together. The closure/clasp is beautiful and makes me think of Gatsby-esque era. Am I right? The beads are "curbed noodle shaped" and the curb is not identical from bead to bead which makes me wonder if making of beads was less than 100% mechanical? Also, there are tiny tiny air bubbles in some of the beads. I'm pretty sure a metal tube runs through the beads, because the "cord" is a metal wire. The "spacers" between the beads are not sealed to the beads. There are no markings anywhere! Any help would be greatly appreciated!
