Art Deco 1920s Neiger Brothers Pendant Chain Necklace
This beautiful Art Deco necklace is in excellent antique condition. The two part articulated pendant displays Chinese motifs with a dragon featuring on the main panel. The pendant is decorated with sky blue Czech glass and it hangs from a gilt brass chain made from flat rectangular punched plates. The pendant is built on a filigree style punched brass backing in keeping with many Neiger brother pieces.
This piece is attributed to the Neiger Brothers due to the materials used and the design style, but as with all Neiger pieces, it is unsigned.
It's in lovely condition for its age with areas of rubbing to the gilding as would be expected from a well loved piece. The chain fastens with a spring ring clasp which is in good working order.
The Neiger brothers of Gablonz Czechoslovakia, known as Max and Norbert, created beautiful costume jewellery made primarily of Bohemian glass. They specialized in exotic pieces inspired by Egypt, India and China. The 1920s saw a peak in interest for Egyptian Revival jewellery and the Neiger brothers' popularity increased with it. They were active from 1905 until the end of the 1930s when, as unfortunate witnesses to history, they were killed at Auschwitz.
Their jewellery is very rare and collectible because it is so different and was produced over such a limited period.
