Vintage Sterling & Enamel Blackamoor Earrings
An unusual pair of vintage blackamoor earrings from the 1960s! Likely of Italian descent, the earrings are crafted in sterling silver and have a black and white enameled design. Each earring depicts a simple blackamoor face wearing a decorative turban hat. The earrings have a unique curved shape and clasp in the front with reverse hinged hooks. Delicate dotted enamel detail adds a lovely accent to the turbans, and silver accents form the facial features. A small sterling plaque engraved with leaf-like detail rests below each neck, a lovely finishing touch. These wonderful vintage earrings have a distinctive look and would make a special addition to any collection!
Measurements: The earrings hang 3/4" long, are approximately 1/4" at the widest and thickest point, and 1/8" at the narrowest point.
Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to sterling setting or enamel detail, which is free of chips or scratches. The earring wires and hinges clasp securely and are in good working condition.
