Lisner Lucite Leaf and Chrome Tone Necklace featuring ten moulded lucite leaves each adjacent to a claw set mint green rhinestone. The leaves alternate between a pale and deep green and they each have a chrome midrib. The necklace with an elongated grecian chrome tone chain measures 41.5cm long and it has an extender finished with a chrome tone ball finial.

This piece could be worn as a choker or a collar. Each leaf measures 2.8cm long and 1.4cm at its widest point. This lovely necklace is signed on the hook 'LISNER' and it weighs 40.1g. The Once considered "junk jewellery," vintage Lisner pieces have only recently become collectible.

In the 1990s, collectors realized that the clever shapes and bright colours of the company's cheaply made plastic leaves and baubles possessed a unique beauty. For nearly 30 years after its 1904 founding, Lisner imported and sold Elsa Schiaparelli's Parisian jewellery in the United States.

In the 1930's, the company achieved a higher profile by finally selling its own designs that employed Dupont's new coloured acrylic plastic called Lucite, as well as clear and coloured rhinestones (particularly aurora borealis) and lava stones, as well as chromed, silver-plated, and black japanned metal.

Currently, one of the most coveted vintage Lisner lines is the molded plastic oak-leaf jewellery, which was only produced for five years in the '60s. Individual pieces like pins or necklaces without matching bracelets or earrings are more affordable.

This beautiful piece of jewellery began its journey many years ago and may have some very minor imperfections collected along its travels. By purchasing this piece you will investing in a brand new chapter of its story as well as making a positively conscious choice on sustainable fashion. Vintage jewellery for the beautiful you on our beautiful planet.
