This very unique huge medallion necklace is a necklace I've hung onto for many decades. Knowing I would probably never see another one like it in my lifetime, I've kept is safely stashed away. I think I wore it once or twice when I first bought it many decades ago.
This necklace is not signed however I can tell you it was made in Mexico in the 1950-1960 Mid-Century Modern Era. The dead giveaway on the country it was made in is in the hand made green/white marbled glass beads on the necklace chain and dangling from the medallion. These beads are Mexican recycled glass beads that were made to look like Chalcedony.
What I like most about this necklace is the HUGE hand crafted sun or flower medallion. It is a whopping 3" or 73 mm wide. The medallion is brass on the front and solid genuine copper on the back with black enamel in the recessed areas on the front. The large dark green cab at the center is Acrylic.
The necklace chain is one continuous loop 30" or 76 cm long and is made of stainless steel. The entire necklace is in pristine clean condition with no imperfections or flaws. All of the glass beads are perfect with no chips or cracks. The copper is professionally cleaned and polished. The Acrylic cab has light swirls from gentle handing ;some light wear in tiny spots to the black enamel. The back of the medallions has some light scratches and dings from gentle handling. The necklace is not signed.
Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new presentation necklace box.
