Description

    Theda Bara Cleopatra Necklace Part of Theda Bara's Cleopatra jewelry was this dazzling necklace -- two serpents posing on profile, eyes staring at you, with faux-jade centerpiece and a sparkling translucent blue stone set in a six-pointed star. This decoration hangs suspended from the band, and the snakes seem pleased with themselves, as if aware of the foreshadowing they represent for that inevitable finale with the asp. Tarnished brass is still impressive and the overall effect formidable indeed, and the item is in overall Very Fine condition. This necklace was part of the costume and jewelry archive that Theda Bara personally presented to the consignor shortly before her death in 1955, and the star identified this piece as being from the long-lost epic. A stunner! From the Joan Craig Costume Archive of Theda Bara. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from Joan Craig.
