Vintage Turquoise Hand-Pressed Glass Beads and

White Baroque Freshwater Pearls

PP121ES20SET

The pearls are classed as baroque as they are uneven in shape. They originate from China.  The vintage glass has been moulded in opaque turquoise glass, which has been dinted by hand to form arrow-shaped dents, while the glass was still molten.

 

There are also random black spatter patterns, and the beads are uneven rhomboid shapes; they date from the 1950’s or possibly earlier.  The white baroque pearls alternate with the beads to add a different shine and texture.  

 

This set consists of a necklace, bracelet, and matching drop earrings. The pearls measure approximately 8-10mm and the beads are approximately 22mm. The necklace length is 59cms (just over 23 inches) and has 33 alternating beads and pearls.  

 

The silver double toggle clasp is 925 silver.  There are two rings to allow for a 1-inch extension. 

 

The bracelet measures 20cms (8 inches) and has 12 pearls and beads.  It closes with a silver lobster trigger clasp and 4cm (1.5 inch) extension chain.

The set is sold with a pair of drop earrings with matching beads and pearls, on silver-plated hook backs, for pierced ears.
