1930’s Iris Glass Diamanté Necklace


This is an amazing example of a 1930’s Iris Glass paste work/diamanté statement necklace.
It features a (costume metal) chain necklace, with paste stones shaped into a fan at the centre of the neck.
It is a great example of Art Deco jewellery from this period.

Iris glass was developed in the 1920’s to mimic rainbow quartz, and features lovely red, blue and green coloured stripes across the delicate paste ‘stones’.
Nearly all Iris glass was produced in Czechoslovakia between the two World Wars, and while unsigned we are happy to place this piece as having been created there.

The necklace is a total of 16 inches around.
