Double Cream and Black

A stunning glance at the Art Deco! This striking ebony and ivory coloured Bakelite buckle dates from the Art Deco period.  It is made of two layers of Bakelite one cut and silhouetted over the other, it is a typical example of Art Deco design.  

Certainly a statement piece, featuring a two-layer black and cream geometric Bakelite Art Deco buckle with a floral relief pattern supported on two strings of fully knotted cream coloured baroque freshwater pearls, alternating in groups of three, with black faceted French jet beads.  

 

French jet emulates real jet but is, in fact, cut glass that was first used by French jewellery design houses at the end of the 19th century.  

 

The strings graduate in length from the shortest at 84cms (just over 33 inches) to the longest at 89cms (35 inches).  The buckle measures 10cms (4 inches) long and 6cms (just over 2 inches) at its widest point.

The necklace is sold with two pairs of drop earrings. One pair made from matching pearls and black French jet beads on gold-plated hook backs; and the other a cut black glass bead with goldtone surround, on ball and post findings with butterfly backs.
