This is a lovely vintage Picasso Glass Bead necklace from the 1920's. It features oval Picasso glass beads from Austria. The beads have a white glass base with a luster coating that appears speckled and spotty; giving the beads a natural, stone like appearance. The colors vary from light yellow to dark brown with underlying color variations. The Picasso finish is still very popular today and is being recreated in the Czech Republic and Japan on modern day beads. The beads are graduated ovals and are knotted on silk with a barrel clasp. It is also long enough to slip over your head easily.
