    Hello everyone, I collect vintage costume jewellery and I've had this necklace for some time now. It's quite a heavy piece I must say, I think it's brass? That is literally all I know, I have found nothing similar anywhere. I thought perhaps it was one of those Art Deco 'ball/chain' necklaces, though it does seem a little'fancy'?

    I'd love to hear what your thoughts are on age/era :) 109.jpg 107.jpg 102.jpg 105.jpg

    It's lovely, imo 1930s, German.

    Thank you Avantbo, I think it's lovely, couldn't wear it for long though as it is weighty! You've given me something to work with, I certainly did not think of possibly being German, so that's great, thanks again :)

  5. This is a great necklace! I love pieces like this. The brass pieces from the 30s and early 1940s are some of my favorites. I think of the 30s pieces being more of the festoon pieces with dangles or charms and yours as being more streamlined.....maybe late 30s, but I'm thinking early 1940s before WWII. The style of your piece reminds me a little of Joseff of Hollywood's brass jewelry of which I have a few treasured pieces. That catch really looks like Joseff's style. But, your piece is not signed and most of Joseff's pieces are signed. I don't think this piece is German, but I certainly could be wrong about that. I think it may be American made. I look forward to hearing some of the other jewelry people's thoughts and opinions as there many here that know much more about jewelry than I do.

    I am also seeing 1930s to early 40s on this one. It is wonderful! Those brass pieces from the Deco era can be some of the most beautiful.

    Thank you all so much for your comments, you've all been massively helpful!. I must confess I had never heard of Joseff of Hollywood until now, wow, lovely pieces. Mine has no signature sadly so whoever created it shall remain a mystery for now, which is often the way.
  8. Yours has no signature, but it's still a wonderful piece. Many of my jewelry favorites are not signed!
