This is an unusual variety of colors, textures and forms, from round turquoise beads to silver beads to brass ball beads to silver colored tubing and either brass or wood finished tubing, it is all here. Pure 1960s, interesting, heavy, and ready to wear except needing to be cleaned. The original clasp is very much intact and useable, the necklace is very noticeable and would work well with most any apparel.

Sessions Chef Clock shows a mustached cook with tall top hat and uniform holding a bowed glass in the front over a silver face and red dots behind the numbers in the outer edge. The clock is not working, it may be that the cord needs to be replaced. The small goatee under the bottom lip is well painted and in excellent condition. If you are decorating a retro or vintage kitchen, these were fun 50s type of clocks that often were parodies of Chef Boyardee and similiar Italian cooks. This would be a character clock and a person well versed in 50s trivia would probably have no problem in determining who the subject was.
