Vintage 1940s Chunky Green Bakelite and Wood Bead Necklace

Raleigh Vintage

What a fantastic example of 40s bakelite jewelry.  Large, carved green bakelite beads alternative with wood polygons and tiny blue spacer beads.  Hidden screw clasp.  

    Label:  none
    Fabric:   Bakelite; wood
    Circa:  1940s

    CONDITION:  Overall very good.  The necklace shows normal wear including some expected surface patina on the bakelite.  This patina can be cleaned off easily, but we rather like the patina, so have left it.  There are also four of the tiny blue beads missing near the clasp (see photos).  There is no room for them, so they were either never there or the necklace has been nicely restrung.  Priced accordingly.
