Have photos of a maybe half a dozen of these now, obviously from same workshop, as the stone/cloisonne/cinnabar/misc beads are all similar.

Still wondering if these were the inspiration for pieces attributed to Miriam Haskell in the 1940s.

Clasp is stamped "CHINA"

The Japanese War began in 1937, foreigners were rounded up, sent to internment camps in 1941. Dates relevant to Helen Burton's Camel Bell shop in the Peking Hotel, if she was the originator of these necklaces.
