I love these Art Deco chrome chain mail necklaces. However it is very hard to find them in good condition - the paint is often too worn and I have the dilemma - do I leave it as it is, or do I repaint! This one is in completely original condition with the blue enamel paint just a little worn. I cannot attribute it to a particular manufacturer - but it is a good example of a 'chain mail' necklace. See my web site - www.gillianhorsup.com for description. Price £200. I always have a selection of Art Deco jewellery in my shop at Grays Antiques in central London. #ArtDecoChainMailNecklace #ArtDecoNecklace #ArtDecoChromeNecklace
