This is a vintage necklace with red/orange/yellow/clear etc. coloured foil beads on square ?rolled gold fittings. Clasp made from same wire. The beads are in good condition. (In addition to looking - it is helpful to feel each beads - if the glass is not smooth, there might be damage!). They may be Venitian or Czech. The square gold wire used in these necklaces is often rolled gold and usually good quality - so it stays in good condition. There is a safety device in the clasp - you have to twist the catch before it will come out of the fixed loop. I love foiled glass and always like to buy it - but so many of the old beads are damaged. If it is a long row - the damaged beads can often be take out - but this row is approximately 16 1/2 inches - so was glad they are all O.K.!
