Vintage Silver Tone NATURKUNST Pressed Edelweiss Flower NECKLACE

Vintage 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.
Measurements:
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.
