Antique Victorian Mourning French Jet Glass Necklace
Black French jet glass shines in this antique Victorian mourning jewelry necklace, circa 1850. All backed with black enamel, large faceted hexagonal shaped black glass is connected by small glass beads forming the long chain. A large flower pendant with a domed faceted clan glass center drops to negligee style pendants ending with long faced glass bead and a round glass bead. Closed with the traditional hook and eye so that no color was visible, the necklace measures 20 inches long with the pendant and drop adding an additional 5 1/2 inches. This is truly a spectacular find with nary a chip or nick to the French jet glass beads...Exceptional and all authentic antique mourning jewelry necklace that is a wearable today as it was well over 150 years ago!
