Amazing antique 19th century Chinese enameled silver alloy reposse' bead and coral bead necklace with fancy twist clasp.  This is absolutely gorgeous in hand with beautifully worked silver reposse acorn or ribbed squash beads.  We believe there is a 90% possibility that these are high content silver, even sterling.  They did not stick to a magnet, however our silver testing acid has been compromised.  We are therefore selling it as untested.  The coral beads are gorgeous and the cobalt bllue enamel is really fabulous, especially on the double teared floral bead caps.  There is some enamel loss consistent with an item of this age.  Measures  19 1/2 inches in length, the reposse' beads are about 12.5 mm thick however due to how tightly these are strung, cannot tell the length but think probably around 14 - 15 mm.  Excellent condition overall despite the enamel loss and looks amazing on.
