Step into the summer sun with this fun 1950's plastic floral necklace. This style of necklace and plastic flowers has been so popular that they have started making modern reproductions. Here's your chance to own a vintage original! The necklace has a fold over clasp and all brass findings. The brass has the original aged patina and has not been polished. I did clean up the plastic flowers a wee bit, but that's it!
The beads are white plastic and alternate between smooth and faceted styles. There are 2 beads that appear to have been damaged or melted. Luckily, they are the faceted beads, so its not very noticeable when worn. Since this necklace is 26 inches long, you could restring it and simply remove those beads or wear it as-is. The necklace is strung on cord that has some discoloration and you can
see the original finishing knots on both sides of the top of the
The flowers are opaque pink, yellow and blue. The leaves are translucent green. Amazingly, none of the petals have been lost or damaged! I photographed the necklace on a neck form so you can see how the flowers lay, but please note that the necklace is longer than shown. I can provide a photo on a full size bust if you would like to see the length.
