French Black Mother of Pearl "Fish Scale" Necklace
Holy carp, Batman! Something's fishy with this necklace. (hehe) People who see this necklace either love it or hate it - there just doesn't seem to be any middle ground on it. I love it. The base of the chokeris crafted of braided wool. The black mother of pearl discs are sewn to the wool in an overlapping pattern. The design and irridescence of the discs is very reminescent of fish scales.The necklace measures approx. 15 1/2" in wearable length and measures approx. 1 1/8" wide. If you are sensitive to wool, then this necklace is probably not for you.The MOP discsin generally pristine condition with nosurface wear to note.The wires that attach the discs to the clasp are slightly loose and it appears as though a few of the discs are missing, although it doesn't look bad without them.The necklace is unsigned, and I was a little confused about the era and origin of this choker, so I showed it to several colleaques.Several agreed that it was early 20th century and possibly European, but we still weren't sure. Finally, I came across a two piece set, crafted in the same style andwith the same clasp, only in white mother of pearl-it was signed Fabrique en France. Mystery solved! The slide in box clasp is in fine working order, and this dramatic chokeris in overallExcellent condition.
