This is called a necklace mandrel. You can buy them in polished and plated cast iron from all the standard tool suppliers and even from some discount vendors on amazon. I don’t know of any wooden ones currently being made.

While there are such things as necklace mandrels, made typically in cast iron, which allow you to hammer a neck piece into shape against them, I think this wooden piece is simply an old display fixture. If you do an image search for “wooden necklace display” you’ll find quite a few, although an antique like this one will be more difficult to track down.

You could, of course, carve one yourself from a block of wood, assuming you’ve got the tools, skills, and time to do it.

Check out old costume departments. I’ve seen something along the lines of this, but it was a full mannequin dress makers in the 1800s used. This looks like it was cut from an old piece that was probably damaged. I would never have thought of doing this, but it really looks good.

Rio sells several in different sizes and colors. Search https://www.riogrande.com/ for ‘necklace display bust’. These would be for display / photography purposes, not forging.

Here are two:

Looks like a stump with part of the root base attached that someone dug up then hand carved / sanded to final shape.

We carry a steel-plated necklace mandrel for $26.23. We require a $100 minimum purchase though, so I’m not sure if that would be any cheaper…

Depending on where you live, which country, if not N. America or Europe, woodworkers might be cheap and then you could get one to carve one out of wood. This looks especially interesting because of it being old and cracked. I lived in Asia for many years and I know it would be east to get someone to carve one and organize it to look old. And cheaply.

Good luck.
