Berlin iron necklace
A swagged Neo-classical Berlin iron necklace, circa 1820. It features 8 classical portraits silhouetted on polished steel grounds. The triple swagged chains are comprised of finely worked coils of iron. The necklace is 16.5 inches long. It sits well on the neck and is immaculate and rust free. For a necklace of almost identical form, see plate 148 in Schumettermeier’s Cast Iron From Central Europe 1800 – 1850.
