This necklace boasts a sublime lampworked green silver agate cabochon manufactured in mid-century Czechoslavakia. It is set in a trellis-like brass stamping made today in a die cut at least 80 years ago.
Bohemian glassmakers were the first to develop methods for press-molding glass in the early 19th century. They began with solid colored glass and then, as their skills grew, started producing multi-colored stones like this one that mimics gems like opals.
