This Egyptian revival style necklace, gold in color, probably plated, has 13 long flat curved links decorated with four rows of twisted wires - one on each edge and two in the center. Each of these links terminate with a round loop on either end which go through a connecting open bezeled link making the necklace flexible. On top of each of these connecting links are three-dimensional filigreed blossoms. Hollow balls of two sizes with scattered tiny granulations hang from the “flower” motifs.
The necklace closes with a jump and spring ring clasp stamped 10 k.
Gift of Mrs. H. K. Estabrook
