Very beautiful antique circa 1900 pale blue Chinese Peking glass necklace, possibly a prayer necklace, with 30 round beads carved in a basketweave pattern, and a center oblong pendant with carving and piercing, all strung on the original very intricately Chinese knotted thread. The color of the pendant piece seems to be very slightly different from the round beads. Wearable length of the necklace is 34 inches. The round beads are 10mm in diameter. The large pendant is 1 3/4 inches wide and 1 1/4 inches long. Excellent condition with no losses to the glass noted. The thread is old and appears original, so is probably fragile. There is some fraying or breaking of the thread at the top of the pendant but it appears to be holding. Display form is life size. Photos enlarged to show detail.
