Antique Edwardian Lava glass necklace & ER
It is hard to imagine that this magnificent antique piece could have been worn on anything other than an exquisite ball gown. This is such a richly detailed RICH red Lava Glass and seed pearl necklace with 2 large pendant drops. The snake chain with two florettes holds these large layered filigree drops. The largest drop is 2" wide and has the Fleur de lis in the center. From that is another large fancy ornamental drop that has a large lava glass stone that actually looks like it it radiating fire inside. Total length from the florettes to the bottom of the drop is 5 1/2". It is not a small piece by far. The clasp is an old florette filigree box clasp which helps date this prior to the 20's and measures 16" around the neck. The french wire pierced earrings, which are newer than this, are also included because they match so well. It has lots of rich golden patina and other than a few tiny seed pearls missing at the top of the fleur de lis, it is in very good condition. Truly a piece for high end collectors!
