Vtg Art Deco Machine Age Jakob Bengel Brick Link ARROW Modernist Necklace
Curated Jewels for the Vintage Collector. The striking construction and modern look of this necklace identifies it as being made by Jakob Bengel. A prime example of a designer influenced by the Industrial Age, Bengel made lots of different variations of jewelry using the brick link construction and this necklace is a dynamic example. The links feel cool and sleek, laying flush when worn, and the arrow design has a contemporary feeling even today. Condition: Excellent – This necklace has a fresh look and its wear is noticeable only on close inspection and not as the piece is worn. The setting has a bright patina without any dents and a modest amount of surface wear and a slight amount of wear to the chrome finish here and there. This piece had cream colored enameling originally on one side of the necklace and most of the enamel has worn off with age. There are no irregularities to the setting or signs of solder or repair and the necklace has a firm shape. 16 1/2 with the pendant dropping another 2. Mark Germany on the jump ring of clasp.
