ProSa Mexican silver and cobalt blue glass scroll Necklace

on Apr 10, 2019 in archived

Not a very prolific taller, ProSa is nevertheless a name that I look for and whose pieces I try to get for my inventory whenever possible. Their jewelry that I have had over the years are cast and usually very nicely defined and finished. And even though I wouldn’t say that I associate them with big, in-your-face pieces, I was still pleasantly surprised to find this delicately detailed necklace, each of its links adorned with a cobalt blue art glass cabochon. I believe the cabs might even be foiled because they reveal brighter depths when the light hits them directly. Very representative of the more romantic trend of the late 1940s-1950s, the necklace is sheer pleasure to wear…


Size/Weight: 15 3/4″ long (wearable; once clasped, it becomes a little roomier at around 16″; easily lengthened with a simple sterling extension which I can provide upon request); 5/8″ wide; 57.4 grams

Hallmarks / Date: marked with maker’s name as shown as well as with des. no 7150 alongside Eagle 5 assay mark; 1950s-60s

Condition: excellent vintage with strong, saturated color in the glass cabs, very good definition in the casting of the scroll links that look as if they are layered, with great patina and no damage or repairs noted
