Vtg Art Deco German Machine Age Modernist Galalith Signed Slide Pendant Necklace
Curated Jewels for the Vintage Collector. While the mark on the back of this 1930s necklace reveals that it was made by the Rodi & Wienenberger company, the superior style and quality of construction also shows it is a designer made piece. This slide necklace has a substantial weight and feel when worn with the tube shaped, slinky mesh chains measuring 1/4 in diameter. Machine Age jewelry represented the culture shifting through the industrial age and embracing a modern era. With a golden and striking silhouette, that is chunky and bold rather than delicate, this necklace would have been made with this new woman in mind. The sophisticated pendant is curved with a touch of contrast in the black plastic. Moving up and down the chains, the pendant slides and allows you to adjust the necklace as you please, with the bi-color brads at the bottom swinging cheerfully when worn. This necklace has a fresh look and was well taken care of over the years with a modest amount wear. The setting has a bright patina with a minor amount of surface scratching and no dents or misshapen spots. The plastic has a smooth sheen without surface scratching and no chipping. There are no signs of solder or repair and the necklace has a solid shape. 26 with pendant dropping another 2 5/8 below that. No clasp, the slide moves up and down smoothly and grips firmly as it should. T test for silver or gold content, plastic. On signed designer pieces. A piece of jewelry that has been signed by the designer is immediately of higher value, because it definitively places the work in their oeuvre. This gives the piece a personal history that it might not otherwise havefixed in place, time, style, and intent. In addition, signed designer pieces indicate that a designer viewed the work as worthy enough to want his or her name to be forever associated with it. This indicates that the piece was made with a concentration on high-quality construction or perhaps trendy or progressive design. _gsrx_vers_837 GS 7.0.15 (837).
