Early Plastic Butterflies & Leaves, Lucite Chain
For the girl who likes something a little different.....There were many early plastics produced after the discovery that bakelite could be used for jewellery.....lucite was one of them, and the golden semi transparent chain is made from lucite with the green butterflies and dark red leaves hand moulded and carved. This one hails from Europe, although there is no signature to indicate manufacturer. It is typical of 1940's design but may have been produced later during the 1950's. In excellent condition. Measurements-length of chain 55cms. Measurement of leaves 1 1/2cm x 2cm. Measurement of butterflies approx. 3cm x 3cms. A definite one off.....gift boxed for giving.
