Condition Report:

Very Good - A little rubbing to the metal surface of the earrings. This is consistent with age and use and does not detract from the overall appeal of the piece.

The Details...

These earrings are made from silver tone metal. They are set with round, clear pastes and detailed with a green pressed glass panel. They feature a design inspired by East Asian architecture. The earrings measure 6.5cm x 1cm. 

A Short History...

Glass has been a prevelant feature of costume pieces since the invention of jewellery. An easily accessible material that can be formed into any shape and dyed any colour. Glass was heavily used in Art Deco pieces, such as these earrings, because it could be dyed in a vast array of colours to meet the need for affordable jewellery after the Great Depression and First World War. It could also be formed into a variety of shapes to created the geometric designs popular during the Art Deco era. 

Wear it With...

These earrings are perfect for evening wear or a special occasion. They would look beautiful with a little black dress, but equally chic with a bridal gown.
