It was during the Bauhaus and Art Deco period that designers were looking to obtain new materials and inspiration to produce costume jewelry. Inspired by French Avant-Garde and other fashion trendsetters such as Coco Chanel , Bengel started to produce experimental jewelry. The pieces, catalogued 1924-1939, combined brass and chrome with geometric shapes of colored galalith.' wiki Adorable necklace with its vivid spheres of tangerine galalith which are so evocative of its time. The central bead is cossetted with gorgeous flower petal caps of chromed metal and the measurement of the bead with the caps is app 23 mm. These are linked to a pierced geometric chromed panel which links in turn to a pierced chrome sphere and thence to another panel and a small tangerine galalith bead, a slim embossed panel and finishing with a simple chain which fastens with a secure ring bolt clasp. The end jump ring is missing and i have left it as i received it for the purposed of the listing but i will get my Jeweller to attach an end jump ring so that it can be worn easier as that is how i would like to recieve it myself. App 16 inches long . The chrome is showing mild tarnish if i want to be really picky but i have not polished it.
