Napier 1955 Blue Cumquat Necklace
This is a collectible necklace from Napier's 1955 "Cumquat" collection designed by, Eugene Bertolli. The collection featured cumquat "moonglow" beads topped with thick curled metal tendrils. The moonglow beads were made out of resin and came in a large array of colors. The necklace measures 16 1/2" - 18 1/2" long (it is adjustable). The pendant is made up of three tiered cumquats and measures 3 1/2" long. The necklace is in excellent condition. The only flaw to note is a small mark to the finish of one of the moonstones (see photo #6). The necklace is marked, "Napier" on the back of the clasp and is featured on page 310 of the book, "The Napier Co.: Defining 20th Century American Costume Jewelry".
