Christoph Kay: An Art Deco Silver Necklace
L 40.5 cm; W 2.4 cm
Marks: ‘835 KAY’
Germany, 1920s – 1930s
An elaborately conceptualized necklace by Christoph Kay (1869 – 1943), the design based on the repetition of bent v-shaped elements with a hammered surface forming a star-shaped overall-form, accentuated by small silver balls and connected by corresponding circular eyelets, lending the necklace a lively and playful attitude created solely by the arrangement of the strictly abstract-geometric elements.
