Art Deco c1930 glass bead necklace & dress pieces & accompanying portrait studies album

This is a lovely c1930 Art Deco glass necklace.

It is even more special by the accompanying portrait studies album containing pictures of Lila Boddam wearing the necklace.

The necklace is made of 18 clusters of tears drop shaped glass beads.

There are 9 clusters of red glass beads and 9 of clear glass beads that alternate between round faceted clear glass links.

There are also 3 other pieces that were part of the dress that is being worn in the portraits. The clusters in these pieces comprise both red & black beard drop shaped glass beads with round faceted clear glass links.

The album is entitled "Portrait Studies" and the inside page is printed "Lila Boddam 1930 Portraits by Lassalle 62 Baker Street London W" .
There are 11 sepia plates of Lila Boddam wearing the necklace and a dress that uses the red & black pieces - 2 as dress straps and the 3rd as a belt buckle.

Lila Boddam was a mezzo-soprano.

The only information that we have found is an online copy of the Radio Times for the week 23 February - 01 March 1930 iin which Lila Boddam is featured as giving two performances on Wednesday 26 February 1930.

Very good.
Some foxing to mounts in the album
