UP FOR AUCTION IS A VICTORIAN NECKLACE. IT IS MORE LIKE A HANDMADE COLLAR. I'VE OWNED THIS PIECE SINCE THE 70'S. IT IS 23'' AROUND THE INSIDE. WHEN I PURCHASED IT AT AN AUCTION, IT HAD A VERY HEAVY, STIFF FABRIC TACKED ON THE BACK WITH ABOUT 20 STITCHES. THE FABIC WAS LOOSE LIKE CHEESE CLOTH, BUT STIFF. THIS MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR THE MAKER TO SEW THE BEADS ON. IT IS IN PERFECT CONDITION, AND COULD BE THE ONLY ONE OF IT'S KIND LEFT IN SUCH GREAT CONDITION. I'M SURE IT WAS MEANT TO BE SOWN ON A BLOUSE. ONE TIME I WORE IT WITH A LOW CUT DRESS, IT LOOKED WONDERFUL, BUT IT DID ITCH, BECAUSE IT IS ON STIFF NET. THAN ANOTHER TIME I WORE IT ON A WHITE SWEATER. I HAVE BEEN AN AVID VINTAGE JEWELRY COLLECTOR FOR MANY YEARS. MY COLLECTIONS HAVE BEEN ON DISPLAY A FEW TIMES. I AM NOW A SENIOR, DOWNSIZING, SO ENJOY! I DON'T PLAY AROUND WITH RESERVES, SO START AT WHAT I BELIEVE WOULD BE A REASONABLE PRICE. THANKS FOR LOOKING.
