Antique Victorian Napoleon III ear pendants earrings. Enamel, coral and gilt metal. Made in France circa 1860's. <P><P>
Measurements: length, not including wires is a little over 1 3/4 inches (4.5cm). Combined weight is 11.2 grams. <P><P>
Description: Fabulous ear pendants consist of two parts with the lower being slightly larger than the surmount. Both parts are round gilt metal disks surrounded by coral beads. The flat faces of the sections are minutely engraved and decorated with wonderful enamel work in bright, bold colors. Exquisite workmanship. The two sections are joined by two rows of round links which allow the parts to move fairly independantly of each other. This movement draws the eye and adds interest to the already beautiful pair of earrings. Wires are clearly replacements. <P><P>
Marks: No marks were found. <P><P>
Condition: good with minor wear commensurate with age. We found no wear at all to the beautiful enamel work. Backs clearly replaced. Please see enlarged pictures and don't hesitate to ask questions which we will do our best to answer.
