Fantastic sterling earrings from the Victorian (ca1880) era! Each earring is made of sterling silver and portrays a simple yet stunning urn design. The earrings have a 3-dimensional look and hang from sterling half-sphere surmounts which are attached to wires. Each is beautifully decorated with delicate Etruscan wirework that covers the top of each urn as well as at the handles, which rest on either side of the urns. Very light and comfortable to wear, these marvelous earrings would be great worn day or night.
Measurements: Each earring hangs approximately 1 7/8" long, is slightly less than 1/2" at the widest point and is 1/4" in depth.
Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling silver, wirework or to the earring wires.
