Vintage Rousselet Galalith Geometric Stepped or Puzzle Beads French Necklace 1920's
This listing is for ONE necklace.
These great 1920's era necklaces is are a whopping 26 inches long, so generously sized.
Beautiful colors, very comfortable to wear.They are made made of Galalith by Rousselet in Paris.
I have included a photo documenting this style necklace from my friend Ginger Moro's book "European Designer Jewelry" on page 64.
I purchased these directly from Denise, the daughter of Louis Rousselet from her tiny shop in Paris.
I purchased all of them that she had remaining in her vintage inventory.
Denise designed collections for her father from 1943 until 1965 when she took over the exclusive design duties.
She opened her tiny shop in 1960 where she sold Vintage Rousselet beads from trays and boxes piled in every corner of the shop.
These have been restrung by Denise and are tagged with the original Louis Rousselet paper hang tag.
