Antique Victorian Old Carved Agate Barrel Beads Chunky Statement Necklace. Collector. Scottish Interest. Special Occasion / Everyday.
Victorian 1837 – 1901
Perfect For a Collector… or To Wear & Enjoy!
A beautiful antique Victorian Agate necklace. The necklace is made up of large barrel shaped carved beads, gently graduating in size, in wonderful neutral/nude colours, with fabulous markings. The beads have been hand-drilled from each end and the holes meet up in the middle – this is a sign of older beads.
One of the beads must have been lost many moons ago, because the necklace isn’t quite symmetrical (please see penultimate photo). The clasp can be worn slightly to one side to even it up, so this needn’t be a problem. The string has been repaired and is a little messy near the clasp, but again this isn’t a problem and the stringing is now good and strong. The beads have some natural and age related imperfections, which is to be expected with old agate, but nothing which detracts in any way from its immense charm – they are in Wonderful Condition for their age.
Necklace measures approximately: 19.5″ or 49.5cm
The largest bead measures a Whopping: 31.3mm!!
Weight is a Substantial: 105g
