Incredible Schreiner Austrian Crystal Statement Choker Necklace
A very rare find! This huge Schreiner necklace is one of those holy grail type pieces that vintage costume jewelry enthusiasts long for! Not only is the design absolutely stunning in its chic color scheme but the condition is unheard of. Absolutely mint with every stone’s facets crisp and brightly reflective set tightly in their prongs while the matte black japanned metal seems completely untouched! As is typical of Schreiner, this piece is unsigned with exception of a “MADE IN AUSTRIA” plaque on the reverse. Yet you know it’s Schreiner by a few telltale characteristics: inverted stones, layered two-part construction (centerpiece) and segmented adjustment chain closure to name a few. One interesting detail is a series of barely visible numbers handwritten in black on the back as well. Possibly indicating a factory stock code or style number. A total collector’s piece but by all means very wearable! The perfect accessory for a black tie affair or an ideal piece to just “throw on” with jeans when heading out with friends. It’s just so good! Comprised of nine segments that together measure 14” from end to end. The chain at the back adds an additional 3-1/8” to the length.
