Striking French 1920s Galalith and glass flapper necklace

320.00

This long dramatic flapper necklace is especially appealing because of its unusual colour combination and use of materials. Galalith was a plastic derived from milk protein that was used by the fashion industry in France from 1900 onwards, as it could be easily dyed, cut and carved and had many qualities similar to horn bone and ivory. This necklace uses Galalith to marvelous effect, dying it to a light yellow- green and carving it into a somewhat Egyptian design.
