Victorian Star Cutout Carved Ivory Bead Necklace
A fantastic and unusual carved ivory necklace from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This wonderful piece is made of hand carved ivory beads that are particularly large in size. The beads graduate in size and have an interesting star cutout design. Each bead is hollow inside and magnificently carved with a cutout body and carved ends. The ivory beads are strung on simple, thick white thread and the necklace has a simple, yet secure screw clasp which is also made of carved ivory. A fabulous necklace, this bold piece would make a wonderful addition to any collection!
Measurements: The necklace measures approximately 21.5" long. The beads range in size from a little more than 1/2" in diameter being the smallest to 7/8" being the largest.
Condition: The overall condition of the necklace is excellent. There is some minor damage and chips to some of the carved beads which is not noticeable when the necklace is worn. The screw clasp is secure and in good working condition.
