Vintage Copper Necklace 1950's
Francisco Rabajes introduced wonderful copper jewellery to the market during the 1940's and other designers followed him often copying his work. There were a number of companies producing copper costume jewellery by the end of the 1950's including Renoir Matisse and others. This lovely vintage copper necklace is unsigned. It may have been produced by a major costume jewellery company, or one of the smaller artisans around at the time. It is very typical of the era and the jewellery produced in copper in America at that time. Bright copper freeform sections sit between high black gloss enamelled sections. There is a copper chain extension and hook clasp. Width of the enamelled sections are 1.5cms. Length of the necklace end to end including the copper extension chain and hook is 44cms. In excellent condition with a little wear commensurate with age which does not detract at all. A stylish piece, and gift boxed for giving by Vintageonline.
