Big Copper n Brass Ethnic Necklace 1950s Vintage Jewelry
This very unique huge medallion necklace is one that I've hung onto for many decades. Knowing I would probably never see another one like it in my lifetime, I have kept is safely stashed away. I think I wore it once or twice when I first bought it 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 ; the hand made green/white marbled glass beads on the necklace chain and dangling from the medallion.
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 carved Chalcedony 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 handling, and from when it was made. The necklace is not signed.
Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new presentation necklace box.
