Extra Long Cherry Amber Bakelite Flapper Necklace. The beads are a beautiful dark red color often called cherry amber. The 8mm beads are slightly translucent and were hand faceted into geometric shapes, very typical of the Art Deco Period. The beads are each hand knotted on yellow silk. The necklace is in excellent condition, the beads are shiny and don't have any chips or cracks. If you look closely you can see the saw marks where the beads were cut. The necklace is very long in a flapper style and can be worn doubled or knotted.
