Necklace I bought online from Czech republic (from the same seller as the egyptian revival enamel bracelet I posted today).
The "lapis" stones are plastic, not tested yet as I dont have my Simichrome with me right now, but I dont think this is bakelite. Tried the smell test, and it does not have that wonderful bakelite smell. Smells like - wet toilet paper.
The necklace bothers me - it is very much in deco style, nice design, rivets and clasp, but I would like to see some tear and wear, and this is in superb condition. The metal looks modern. The necklace just lacks that feeling it should have. But I am not an expert, and I am not sure. Is this a modern "in deco style" chinese stuff possibly?
The seller was genuine Czech person, she asked a few EURs for it only, as usual (they never ask much for a costume jewelry piece), so I lost no big money.Yet it would be nice to have a true deco, not a "deco".
What do you think about the condition?
