Rare and Marvellous WMF Myra Kristal Bead Necklace
Rare WMF Myra Kristal bead necklace. Dark honey coloured glass with fairy-wing like lavender-violet-petrol-blue iridescence. In very good condition, all original silver-plated brass chain, beads and screw clasp. 18 inches finished length.
Circa 1918-1929, made by Karl Weidman for Wurttemergische Metallarenfabrik, in Germany, of glass covered in a thin layer of silver and then etched with metal salts, each of the 43 beads has been made by hand and so each bead in the strand has slightly different hues.
