Excellent condition, the necklace measures 16" in length with a J hook clasp and weighs 51 grams.

(Inventory Reference S-010520-#1)

Moonglow is a form of lucite that first gained popularity in the 1940s and 50s. Moonglow gets its name due to its moon-like shine and shimmer when light hits its surface. It has a moonstone, almost cats' eye look that seems to have its own inner light. Moonglow lucite was made into earrings, bangle bracelets, beads, buttons, and man-made cabochons that were set into earrings and brooches. Moonglow came in many colors ranging from bright sunshine yellows, bold blues, radiant reds, soft pastels to deep emerald greens. Although moonglow was primarily fashionable during the 40s and 50s, it continued to be used in jewelry until the 1960s. Moonglow is comprised of acrylic resin and of heat-set plastic. This process was called "thermosetting." Unlike today's contemporary plastics that feel hollow and insubstantial, vintage lucite, especially moonglow, has a nice weight to it. It feels strong and cool against the skin.

This comes from an estate where the owner was liquidating a jewelry and doll collection spanning 80 years. She had several designer names such as Weiss, Trifari, Napier, Matisse, Eisenberg, Sarah Coventry, B David, and Coro as well as pieces from West Germany, Japan, Hong Kong and older celluloid jewelry. Numerous items had matching pieces so many demi-parures are available. I acquired so much of this jewelry that I will be working on offering it in the store for years to come.

There are additional antique and vintage jewelry pieces in the various Studio Categories. There are also other antique and vintage costume and plastic jewelry (bakelite, lucite, celluloid, and figurals), collectibles, books, art, glass, china, kitchen, home decor, and retro pieces in the store.

The doll I received isn't the one from the picture. Only one flower on her hat and missing tags. For $100 I expect what I paid for. I am incredibly dissapointed and will not shop with seller again.

What a great seller. Took extra photos for me and emailed them. Very easy to communicate with, and I got exactly what I expected-a beautiful vintage dress for my son's wedding, that was in excellent condition.
