    As mentioned before, I’m not an expert on Czech glass...or Hobe for that matter. But I do love old Czech Glass and get quite excited when stumbling across it, even though it may not be perfect.

    I was at our local antique gallery a few weeks ago doing a quick walk Through. One of the dealer’s had a jumble of necklaces stuck in a corner so after taking a quick peek, found this little cutie for $8. I had my loupe so could tell the beads weren’t plastic, they were painted it appeared, but couldn’t find a mark. Took it home and cleaned it up. On the ring that hooks to the spring ring that closes the necklace, it says Made in Czechoslovakia.

    The metal fittings between the beads aren’t in the best condition, but from a distance it looks okay...just old. Like me. ????

      Valentino97 Yes, it is very short and only measures about 14-1/8”. The beads themselves measure 1/2”, 1/4”, and 1/8”.

      Thank you for looking!

      Ms.CrystalShip thank you, Eileen! Glad I took time to rummage through the stuff and spotted them. I just couldn’t remember the name of the cake. I’m glad Gillian said that. This getting old with an MS brain gets aggravating on occasion!
