Overall excellent condition. The two branches that constitute the necklace hook together at the central flower. Two minor oxidation spots visible of the petals, not visually distracting and consistent with natural evolution of the material. When examined in person, the color of the petals appear closer to gold than pictured on the photograph. Variations in texture and shape are inherent to production. The necklace is offered in its original protective case. In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above. Since we are not professional conservators or restorers, we urge you to consult with a restorer or conservator of your choice who will be better able to provide a detailed, professional report.
