This early 50s novelty necklace is definitely a statement necklace! Green straw sombreros trimmed with plum tube beads. Colorful hand-painted, wooden beads dangle from five of the hats. Connected with a brass link chain. Lariat style. A great summer accessory from the heyday of Mexican and Western influences in late 40s and early 50s...and definitely a very rare piece!
