    This is a dramatic Vintage Cherry Amber Faceted Bakelite Necklace.  Composed of 65 beads, ranging in size from 0.25" (6mm) to 1.25" (32mm), the necklace measures 36" long and weighs 82 grams.  The oval shaped beads have a deep cherry red color and a multi-faceted surface that reflects the light.  They test positive as Bakelite.  They are strung on a double white cord, probably not original, and have no closure.  The necklace easily slips over the head.  Maker and exact age are unknown, although similar necklaces date from the Art Deco era when this color of Bakelite and style of bead were popular.  This Vintage Cherry Amber Faceted Bakelite Necklace is in very good condition with no damage or wear to the beads.
