Victorian Mother of pearl necklace Vintage fan blades with inlaid Sterling silver on glass chainIncredible vintage hand cut and inlaid (with Sterling silver) Mother of pearl repurposed/ renewed intoan elegant necklace! The 3.25"x 7/8" long fan blades were originally the spines of a vintage Victorian fanthat ladies would flutter to keep themselves cool or accessorize their outfit with. Interesting fact " It was one customary to give a fan as a betrothal gift. Over time some of the silks and fabrics didnt survive and all that remained was the frames/spines like thesemother of pearl section. They have been trimmed and appointed with fittings to give them a new life in another form.Necklace measures 22" of vintage turquoise blue glass that drapes on outside of double chain.Findings are silver plated,brass,sterlingAlso the line of demarcation you see on this item is not a crack, its where its original makers married to slices of mother of pearl together to get a larger piece. If you look the line is in different spots becasue the sandwiched it on an angle (it takes skill to do that)It is solid and thick and in great shape, and makes this item all the more interestingPlease be aware that these pieces are made of shell which means the material is delicate, mishandling or dropping will cause it to potentially break or chip., mother of pearl
