ARCHIMEDE SEGUSO Vintage Hand Blown Glass Link Necklace
A fantastic Vintage (ca1960s) hand blown glass link necklace by the legendary glass-maker Archimede Seguso. This fabulous piece is comprised of wonderful milky white and light brown glass links that come together to form an elegant and bold link necklace. Each link is formed by two "U" shaped sides, one cream and the other brown, which are finished at both ends in lovely brass caps. The brown links are transparent with a hint of orange and the creamy white links are softly translucent. With 48 total links, the necklace rests beautifully along the neckline and fastens in the back at a smoothly polished brass push clasp. The colorful glass chain is modeled after the necklace that Seguso made for Chanel, however this one appears to be unsigned. A remarkably bold and attractive statement piece, it would make a fabulous addition to any collection!
Measurements: The necklace measures approximately 19" long. Each individual link measures about 1/2" long, 5/8" wide, and slightly more than 1/8" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the glass chain is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to any of the glass links or brass findings and the clasp is secure and in good working condition. Due to the nature of glass, tiny bubbles are presents within the links, adding a wonderful artistic aesthetic to the design.
