Necklace of rare antique Chinese Peking glass beads in green grape color. The necklace features a large tabular disk on knotted cord with 9 matching round beads. No clasp, slips over the head. The desk measures 1 1/2 inches and the beads average 10mm. The necklace circumference is 24 inches. This type of old Chinese glass has wonderful soft colors and bubbles and was often intended to simulate gemstones such as jade, emeralds and quartz. Before 1911, beads of this type were made as counterweight pendants to mandarin Court jewelry. After 1911 these disk beads were made for the Chinese Opera costumes.
