Vintage 1930s Art Deco Festoon Dangle Swag WIDE Collar Necklace
Substantial and tactile feeling, the extra elaborate and wide festoon design sets this 1930’s necklace apart from similar pieces. Made from eleven strands of tiny brad beads that drape and wrap all around your neck, this piece is weighty and the silhouette is dramatic, curvy and feminine. The pendants that serve to gather the beaded strands, are stamped with classically Art Deco designs. This piece is fresh looking and was well taken care of, the minimal amounts of wear are noticeable only on close inspection. The golden setting has a bright patina without any dents, a modest amount of darkening and discoloration and very little surface wear. There are no irregularities to the setting or signs of solder or repair and the piece has a firm shape. (if the piece is not marked it is tested for gold content). Art Deco is one of the first truly international styles, that influenced the design of buildings, furniture, fashion and of course, jewelry. The movement was given a name from the international exposition of Arts De coratifs et Industriels Modernes, that was held in Paris in 1925 and largely dedicated to the jewelry arts. Born out of ideas of modernism and the Industrial Age, this manifested into designs that used Cubism s bold abstraction and rectilinear shapes and combined them with intricate patterning, bold color and symmetry. High-end jewelry design houses like Cartier and Boucheron set the trends in gold and gemstones, which were then emulated by costume jewelry companies in glass or perhaps plastics, and brought to the masses. Antique and vintage styles that are typically seen in small or modest sizes get dramatic attention when theyre found in large, oversized, or bold pieces. These larger versions increase the collectability of a piece. _gsrx_vers_837 GS 7.0.15 (837).
