Ref  LF1    French Jet Bow-ribbon Necklace

I haven't seen one of these lovely necklaces for years. This is a later 19th century example of a 'French jet' floral and bow-ribbon necklace circa 1860, stamped to reverse Packer for Charles Packer. Charles Packer of Regent Street, London was one of the largest retailers of French jet, which was extremely popular in fashionable society. French jet is actually deep red glass which appears black when set on black painted japanned metal panels. The necklace is 17.5 inches long with a hidden clasp. The central bow-ribbon drop in 1 and 1/8 inches wide and 2 inches long. The bow-ribbon panels all measure one inch by one inch and the floral panels graduate in size from 3/4 of an inch by 3/4 of an inch to 1/2 an inch by 1/2 an inch. It sits well on the neck and is immaculate.

£1750
