Vintage Early Plastic Bead Necklace - 18 In. - Yellow - Knotted - Sterling Silver Flower Clasp

This is a vintage yellow early plastic bead necklace. The beads are knotted in between and are graduated in size. Early plastics are not my area of expertise. I am not sure what type of plastic this is. The beads look like they are molded and not carved. I can see seams on some of the beads. Some of the beads look worn and I can see what looks like age cracks in some of the beads. They have a shimmer to them and a marbled look. Judging from the string used and the sterling silver flower clasp, I would say these date to the 1930s or 1940s. Possibly a very early form of moonglow beads. Please look at all photos and make your decision accordingly. Selling as is.
