Antique Austrian 1930s turquoise glass festoon necklace ✶ SALE ✶

A gorgeous example of 1920s Austrian costume jewelry: ornate, colorful, and lavish. The necklace has a supple, twisted foxtail chain upper - with trios of lengths capped with filigree ball findings. The bib or festoon portion of the necklace features pressed turquoise glass in crimped, square panels. White, black and turquoise blue enamel accents frame the glass, which is so carefully colored that it appears to have matrix, just like real turquoise. Ten graduated lengths of festoon chain - five on either side - connect the flanking panels from the main panel. Gorgeous workmanship. Decorative, original clasp. Spectacular and increasingly hard to find example of Austrian jewelry, with obvious influence from the Austro-Hungarian pieces of the late 19th century.

Condition. One faux pearl missing from the main pendant, easily replaced, and the pressed turquoise panel absent from the clasp. Otherwise, very good condition.

Measurements: 16", bib/festoon approx. 3" x 4"
Era: 1920s-1930s
