Antique French Art Nouveau Silver Station Necklace

$ 850.00

It took me forever to figure out that neck chains like this one are called ‘station’ necklaces. I wonder if this come from the idea of a rosary? The stations being set at intervals around the chain. This particular station necklace is long enough to wear wrapped three times around and is a neckless in an of itself. Add another chain and a bauble or two and you’ve got quite a proper riot going on!

This necklace, or chain or station necklace, if you will, is French, and Art Nouveau, and entirely wonderful. The stations are silver plaques, each 9.2 mm across, some have the head in profile of a woman warrior, some a crescent symbol, and still others sprigs of mistletoe. The stations are set with 6 inches of hand crafted silver chain between each and the necklace is 62 inches long overall, it has a clasp which can also be used to dangle a coin or something else fabulous. This necklace has the French boar’s head hallmark and weighs 20 grams, it was made in the Art Nouveau era, right around 1900, I’d think.
