Incredible antique Victorian handmade jet mourning collar. This amazing collar has been handmade using small jet black beads interspersed with bronze coloured seed bead columns. You can clearly see the hand stitching on the back of the columns and near the clasp.
This large and heavy piece measures approximately 18 inches in length and 5 inches in depth at its longest part. It is secured by a De Long hook and eye clasp.
Due to its age, it should be handled with care, as some of the beads are a little loose, but still attached and the stitching a little messy in places, but this is not seen when worn.
This incredible piece would be perfect for evening wear, or theatrical productions.
