Vintage Silver Tone NATURKUNST Pressed Edelweiss Flower NECKLACEVintage Silver Tone NATURKUNST Pressed Flower NECKLACE CONDITION OF THIS PARTICULAR ITEM: From a Laguna Beach, California estate we are currently processing. Please see our other listings in the upcoming weeks for more wonderful items from this estate.
This is a piece of vintage jewelry and as such it will have a patina of wear that you might expect on older jewelry. I did not polish this up for photos and know it will look even better once given a proper cleaning by you.
I checked this piece over and found no previous repairs and none needed now. Lovely German necklace marked "Naturkunst" featuring a pressed Edelweiss flower set in a silver tone metal. Very ornate filigree design on braided silver chain.
The legend was that a young man would climb a mountain to get only one Edelweiss flower (all that was allowed) for his sweetheart.
Center pendant is about 2 inches long overall.
Chain is about 17 inches long overall. Please email any questions you may have and see the photos for more details.
Thanks for looking.

Please take a look at my other listings! We offer all our items just as we bring them in... sometimes dusty and in need of light cleaning. Keep in mind in many cases we know absolutely nothing about a specific item, it's history, how it works, or how to use it! Please examine the photos carefully to see what's included and what's not... since you are bidding on the exact item shown in the pictures. I will always describe the condition the best I can, by telling you what I see in front of me. ABOUT THIS AUCTION AND HOW THINGS WORK: We are AKACHUCK, and proud to be in our 12th year on Ebay.
