Necklace


Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Made for a middle-class woman, this necklace is composed of simple, toy-like ducks that appear to be solid gold, yet are actually stamped out of thin foil. This creates the false impression of a very costly necklace, as do the glass beads that resemble pearls.
