Elsa Schiaparelli took inspiration from nature in her designs, often using abstract forms. Known for surreal designs with a sense of humor, she created wearable art in the form of clothing, jewelry, and fashion accessories from 1927-1954. While this may be one of her more subdued designs, it has a sense of whimsy and elegant, fanciful lines. It's an everyday chain that boasts a place in fashion history.
Midcentury gold plated metal. Marked Schiaparelli (1940-50's logo). This piece was well loved as evidenced by wear to the backside. Otherwise in lovely condition. A real treasure!
