Vtg 1920s High Art Nouveau Deco Lapis Galalith Plastic Sautoir Flapper Necklace
This 1920s flapper necklace embodies the individuality and free-spirited woman who would have worn it originally. While the elongated silhouette of this piece (which allows for lively movement) was popular in flapper jewelry, the style and refined design of this particular piece is uncommon. Rich blue galalith plastic, made to simulate carved lapis, is thick and dimensional with naturalistic flecked patterning. A full-sized pendant curves dramatically in a design that epitomizes the apex of the Art Nouveau. This piece is fresh looking and must have been tucked away and well. Taken care of, the signs of wear are noticeable only on close inspection. The setting has a golden patina with some darkening and discoloration that is noticeable on inspection. There are no components missing and they all look original to the piece. The plastic has a nice sheen without any chipping – there are some beads and components that have faded and discolored slightly which is noticeable when comparing and inspecting the piece. There are no other irregularities to the setting or signs of solder or repair and the piece has a firm shape. With the pendant dropping another 4 1/8. Material Brass, Plastic (galalith). Period pieces refer to those pieces that feel quintessentially of a certain era or movement. These pieces include the typical design elements associated with that period for a classic look.

Movement in jewelry is an indicator of a higher end piece, as it demonstrates that the designer considered how the jewelry would look and feel when it was actually worn. For example, high-end pieces often adjust to different necklines or wrists for comfort and a seamless look. Other times, movement is strategically incorporated for gemstones to catch the light or to enhance the sparkle of a certain gemstone cut. _gsrx_vers_1251 GS 8.2.1 (1251).
