MASSIVE Vintage Necklace AMBER 1960's Designer Baltic Amber and Sterling Silver Neck Piece / Necklace
This mid-century designer brutalist sterling silver and Baltic Amber organic neck piece is one of the most beautiful, outstanding and unusual pieces that I've personally every seen. The necklace has been designed around a huge chunk of amber with nice resin deposits as its main focus. There is another branch with yet another large natural piece of amber.
I once had the Polish artists name and a website with other examples of his work from the 60's and 70's but unfortunately due to a computer meltdown I've since lost it and can't find it again. Marked GJ in an oval beside which is the assay mark for Poland, post 1920.
CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition with no damage to the amber or the sterling silver. I've not cleaned it and won't because some people may prefer the natural patina.
SIZE: The pendant hangs a striking 7 1/4 inches from the necklace. The large piece of amber is 2" x 1 7/8" and the smaller one is also an irregular shape and is 1" x 1/2"
I will continue to try to find the artist who created some very avante garde beauties and is very well known and documented, just have to nail the name down.
