Vtg 1930s Art Deco Molded Flower Coral Glass Dangle Festoon Pendant Necklace
Glass made to simulate carved coral was a popular design during the 1930s and this necklace is an elaborate example. The glass cabochons are in a variety of shapes and sizes with crisp floral designs and a vibrant pink hue. The setting and overall design is influenced by the Art Nouveau, with winding leaves and draping chains giving this necklace a full and dynamic silhouette. The delicate swooping chains and dangling pendant give this necklace a nice amount of movement when worn. This piece is fresh looking and was well taken care of, the minimal amounts of wear are noticeable only on close inspection. The setting has a bright patina with very little darkening or discoloration. The glass has a smooth and gleaming surface without any chipping and a modest amount of scratching. There are no irregularities to the setting or signs of solder or repair and the piece has a firm shape. 16 with the pendant dropping 3 below that.

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. Figural jewelry includes any piece that has been shaped into an animal, person, object, or detailed day in the life scene. Antique and vintage figural jewelry is often quite charming and collectible for the realistic or cutesy details. _gsrx_vers_837 GS 7.0.15 (837).
