A really beautiful antique/vintage Art Deco Bohemian Czech Hubbell beads lavalier necklace. The beads were hand made in the old Kingdom of Bohemia. The Czechs were expert at emulating precious stones with glass, and this is no exception – it’s very realistic, right down to the lovely matrix patterns on the wedge shaped dropper. The necklace is on a gold tone chain which is still lovely and shiny. It fastens with a bolt ring clasp. The necklace is in Fantastic Condition, with no damage that I can find.
John Lorenzo Hubbell purchased a trading post in Arizona in 1878. He named it the ‘Hubbell Trading Post’. He provided goods to the Navajo and Hopi people, as well as other tribes and thousands of traders and settlers. He bought large quantities of beads from Bohemia Czechoslovakia, which looked just like the turquoise stones that were native to Arizona. He sold these beads to the native people, who made them into jewellery, baskets and other works of art. He then bought these back to be sold at the trading post – thus making a massive contribution to the Indian arts & craft market.
Everything is ALL ORIGINAL.
