The more I look at these earrings, the more I see two swans! I don't know that they were meant to be birds, but to me, they most definitely are - and very graceful birds, at that. Formed from thick die-stamped "S" shaped pieces, decorated with silvertone metal mesh, the type used in flexible mesh handbags - though this mesh has been made rigid. 1.5" high x 1-3/8" wide, these clips are in excellent condition on the front; a bit of patina on the back, where it does not show. These probably date from the 1960s, perhaps a bit earlier.
