Art Deco Sterling + "Faux Cherry Amber" Bakelite Hoop Dangle Earrings
A fun pair of earrings from the Art Deco (ca1930s) era! These fabulous earrings begin with a rounded Bakelite top, connected to a simple silver kidney earring wire. A sterling chain dangles below to support a faceted pear-shaped Bakelite hoop. A short Bakelite drop hangs in the center of the hoop, dangling with lovely motion. All of the Bakelite pieces are "faux cherry amber", offering a beautiful, deep red hue. These earrings would make a wonderful addition to any collection!
Measurements: The earrings hang slightly longer than 2 1/4" in length, including the earring wire. The hoop measures approximately 15/16" at its widest point.
Condition: The earrings are in excellent condition. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling silver earring wires or chains. The Bakelite is free of chips and scratches and is securely set.
