Vintage circa 1940 Chinese export big necklace with an amazing variety of antique and vintage Chinese beads, including a carved cinnabar lacquer center bead, a kingfisher enamel bead, large coral beads, carved early stone beads, malachite, quartz, tiger eye, turquoise, and agate beads, cloisonne beads, carved bone beads, a very large lampworked glass bead, metal beads, a butterscotch amber or copal bead, and a very large wood bead inlaid with silver dots. Also with small red glass spacers. Silver filigree clasp is marked SILVER. 26 inches wearable length. The center cinnabar lacquer bead is 1 1/8 inches or 30mm. All beads are in excellent condition. I found one small loss on the smaller green cloisonne bead, pictured, but not noticeable at a short distance. Display form is life size. Photos enlarged to show detail.
