Vintage midcentury carved lacquer style resin beads on silver chain. n
Necklace made with old molded resin with black decor in the grooves, made to resemble carved red and black lacquer. . The shine and patina on these looks much like the Japanese lacquer style although the design resembles Chinese cinnabar beads. I've never seen any quite like these. Beads are 18mm. The necklace is 30 inches in length. Silver box clasp. This necklace came from a collectors estate and likely dated from the early to mid 20th century.
