Very much in the style of the Neiger Brothers and almost certainly from Czechoslovakia, this glass bead necklace has a chinoiserie aesthetic with the larger white beads having an impressed image of a man in a Chinese style hat. The red beads are all plain glass and really stand out against the off white colour of the decorated beads. Each bead is hand knotted into place - the cord seems to be in reasonable condition with one visible repair or perhaps the original final knot when the piece was finished? I would recommend wearing with care or having the necklace professionally restrung unless it will be kept in a collection. The beads are all intact though there is some wear to the paint used to highlight the impressed designs.
42 long falls to approx waist on medium height me! I will gift wrap your order to make opening your treat even more special! International - all orders sent by Tracked and/or Signed.
