CORO Very Old Art Deco 3 Strand Bead Necklace Vintage Jewelry
I believe this necklace was made c1940. The beads are strung on wire, so the necklace is quite stiff. The goldtone Deco beads even have geometric texture on them, and there is a pattern of holes at the end of each bead. The longest strand is 16" and the shortest is 12.5", and the extension adds 3". The beads are connected to an antiqued ornate brass clasp with a hook fastener, and the hook is marked "Coro" in script without © (and although worn, still legible).
The necklace could definitely stand some cleaning, which unless requested otherwise I will leave for the buyer (but I do believe it will clean up nicely).
