Vintage Chinese Export Necklace Turquoise & Pink Porcelain Beads
Lively colors of magenta pink, turquoise blue, lavender and yellow are featured in this lovely vintage necklace strand of Chinese export beads with silver filigree clasp, circa 1940s.
The Art Deco era necklace consists of hand painted porcelain beads with peony flowers, symbolizing good fortune, along with a decorative floral design. The oblong shaped beads measure approximately 23mm in size, and are indivually knotted on turquoise colored silk cording.
The necklace itself has an unmarked oval shaped silver filigree tongue in groove clasp with gold gilding, and measures approximately 25 inches in length, and weighs over 100 grams (which is the maximum weight of my scale).
