Antique Etruscan Revival gilded brass silhouette drop earrings Circa 1901-1915. The earrings are fashioned from gilded brass. The lower drop has a silhouette cameo in black onyx.
The earrings are very light weight & have a beautiful patina. The upper drop portion of the earrings have, what looks like to me, Egyptian symbols or designs done with mil-graining. The lower drop has flower & bow designs & more mil-graining around the silhouette cameo. The Silhouette is prong set with thick prongs.
The earrings measure 2 1/2" in length x 3/4" wide-lower drop & they are screw backs. There is age appropriate wear to the gilding which is to be expected with earring that are this old-not really noticeable though unless you get up close.
