Vintage Exotic Japanese bird festoon necklace Victorian Mourning bird choker Black gold damascene jewelry
Vintage Exotic Japanese bird festoon necklace. The detail work on this vintage damascene necklace goes to show how much time goes into each of these panels. Damascening is the art of inlaying different metals into one another-- typically, gold or silver into a darkly oxidized steel background-- to produce intricate patterns similar to niello. The English term comes from a perceived resemblance to the rich tapestry patterns of damask silk.Each drop is made with nature in mind with flowers and birds. The largest drop is 1 1/4" long. The length of the necklace is 20" long and the settings are gold filled and in great shape.
