A fabulous glittering genuine cut steel necklace with an asymmetrical (negligee) double drop and a front hook closure. Circa 1910 - 1920. Probably French. The design is beautifully modern and forward looking. Twelve disks set with riveted cut steel stones, connected with chain links. In a stunning gunmetal gray which will perfectly complement this season's palette.

A classic collectible piece, and currently perfectly of the moment as well. The fashion world is in the midst of a major Art Deco revival, with top houses such as Marc Jacobs, Lanvin, and Gucci showing jewelry and accessories with a glamorous graphic moderne edge.

16 1/2 inches wearable length. 1 1/16 inches wide at the sides. The center double drop is 3 1/2 inches long and 2 1/2 inches wide. Excellent condition. There are a few tiny touches of rust which could be polished out, but they are not at all noticeable. Photos enlarged to show detail.
