Early 20th Century Necklace - Hand Cut Tribal Bone Costume Jewellery - French African Fashion Necklace c.1910 - J2/20
This is a totally gorgeous piece of jewellery, collected in Africa by a French woman who was exceptionally well travelled. Her collection included many pieces from different countries and cultures, although she preferred to remain in countries where French was spoken. This necklace from Africa features skilfully hand-cut arrow head shaped pieces of bone, probably bovine, together with hand made beads leading to the clasp. The overall creation is a wonderful item that hangs incredibly well and articulates beautifully.
This necklace has an "Art-Deco-meets-Tribal-Art" vibe styling - it really is a design from before its time. With the feel and colour of Faux Ivory, the clasp is a very simple hook and eye that works fine - the weight of the necklace keeps it together, it needs no more. We are most happy to present an item that looks great, hangs well, is beautifully made and feels wonderful.
It is made to wear with either side on show; one side shows the shapes of the arrow-heads, and the other is more sensual, less defined and much shinier. A very beautiful item.
The Necklace is 24' / 62cm long and weighs 90grams
