Antique Vintage Art Deco HUBBELL Bohemian Czech Glass Beads Necklace Rolled Gold Links. Collector. Special Occasion. Wedding Bridal. Party Ball. Red Carpet Event. Present Gift.
Circa 1920’s – 30’s
The Necklace will come in a Ribbon Tied Box and would make a GORGEOUS GIFT!
A really pretty antique/vintage Art Deco Bohemian Czech necklace, made up of faux turquoise beads, known as ‘Hubbell beads’, joined together on rolled gold links. The necklace fastens with a shepherd’s hook clasp. The beads are in wonderful condition and the golden metal is still nice and shiny, but the gold plating is worn on the clasp commensurate with age. This is at the back and doesn’t show when wearing, and doesn’t detract in any way from its immense charm, but it has been priced accordingly.
A nice length – not too long and not too short.
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.
Measures approximately: 17.75″ or 45cm
