Here is a stunning necklace of deep cobalt blue Venetian glass Wedding Cake beads - made with a gold foil and trail decoration, as seen on the conterie sample cards for the early 20th century.
Inevitably, there has been some wear and tear to these beads over the years. As is so often the case with Wedding Cake beads, some of the foil has worn away and some of the trailing come away. This doesn't seem to detract from their beauty though, as you can see and the necklace would still be a delight to wear.
The necklace is graduated with 3 different sizes at least of Wedding Cake beads, interspersed with small cobale blue spacer lampwork beads.
The necklace measures approx. 44 cm long with a goldtone bolt ring clasp.
