CHANEL CARVED OPENWORK MEDALLION NECKLACE
Pre-1980 openwork, double-sided, medallion necklace that is carved with the word C H A N E L multiple times in capital letters and finished off with 4 faux pearls on each corner. It reminds me a bit of Leonardo DaVinci's "Virtruvian Man" drawing ~ a bit edgy and a piece that swings both masculine & feminine. Since the interior of medallion is hollow, its lightweight & very comfortable to wear though its nearly 1/2" thick. Diameter is 1&1/2" with a 36" chain & a lobster claw clasp ~ long enough to wear doubled for a 2nd styling option. Its a fabulous piece and a rare find. The authentication tag is missing - which sometimes happens with pieces 4 or more decades old & this necklace is absolutely authentic.
Excellent vintage condition
