M.WL01 Signed Art Deco Style Glass Bead 2-Strand Necklace c1960 Vintage Jewelry
• Materials: glass beads, AB beads
• Maker: M.WL01 ULRMMNI?
• Approximate Year: c1950s
• Size: 16" and 15"
This choker necklace has two strands of white, highly geometric glass beads, separated by small clear bead spacers. There are also four faceted aurora borealis beads, which glow with multicolors. Some of the beads also have filigree copper end caps. The strand holder and extensions also are made of copper, which all have some age-related oxidation.
The hook clasp is marked, though it is fairly worn and hard to read. This is what it looks like to me: "M.WL01.ULRMMNI." (Since that is nonsensical, even for a designer mark, I clearly haven't interpreted all of the letters and/or numbers correctly.) The longer strand of the necklace (including the single strand portions) is 16 inches long, and the shorter strand 15 inches. A fabulous, Art Deco style vintage necklace! It will be shipped in a gift box.
