Vintage Turkish Sterling Silver and Niello Choker Necklace
Chic necklace made in Turkey in the 1940s or 50s from 925 sterling silver with niello .

The chains end at the central large oval nielloed medallion and form a tassel at the end. The back of the clasp is marked "925" and is a hook and eye mechanism that may be a replacement of an original one. Excellent quality necklace and very elegant.
