1930s Art Deco Bead Necklace - Hand Carved Early Plastic

This necklace has all the elements that are looked for in great early plastic Bakelite era jewellery.  First we have lots of different sized and shaped and hand cut cream with some blue colour washed coloured beads.  There are ovals, discs, rounds and cylinders  in cut casein or Galalith.  Each of these beads has a series of cuts  and  carvings which give a tribal look to this vintage necklace.  The largest central round carved bead is 1.5 cms in diameter across with step carving whilst the smallest beads on this necklace are about half a centimetre. This Art Deco bead necklace has been graduated throughout.  Fastening with a brass roll clasp this necklace is in good condition. The only issue being the colour wash blue has transferred a bit and the cream beads have darkened.  It measures approximately 16 and three quarters inches in length including the clasp.      My guess is that this is a continental European necklace dating from the early to mid 1930s.  This art deco period necklace would be a super addition to a collection of early plastics and bakelite jewelry and would appeal to anyone who collects interesting beads.  It would be equally at home as a treasured and wearable vintage necklace.
