RARE Antique Vintage Art Deco JAKOB BENGEL Uranium Glass Carved Pumpkin Beads Necklace Faux Jade. Collector. Present Gift.
Circa early 1930’s
Perfect For a Collector… or to Wear and Enjoy!
A rare and unusual Art Deco Jakob Bengel Uranium glass beads chrome necklace. The beads are ‘carved’ (moulded) into a pumpkin shape, with segments, which is really attractive. When viewed under normal light, they look like jade, and under UV light they have a fabulous fluorescent glow – this is due to the uranium content, which is very small and totally harmless. The chrome is still lovely and shiny. There is no damage that I can find. The necklace fastens with a bolt ring clasp.
Bengel was most noted for his use of galalith plastic and chrome and his geometric designs, but he also used glass and wood. It is rare to find a piece with uranium glass. His work was unsigned.
Everything is ALL ORIGINAL.
Measures approximately just shy of : 17″ or 43cm
The largest bead measures : 12.5mm – 14.5mm including the bead caps
In Excellent Vintage Condition.
