Antique Amphora Urn 14k Yellow Gold Filigree Earrings

Cannetille is a close relative of filigree work. It typically features fine gold wires or thinly hammered sheets. Jewelry with cannetille was very popular in the 1820's and 1830's. Motifs included tendrils, scrolls, coils, beehives and spider-like rosette ornaments. Jewelry featuring cannetille was often embellished with granulation and thinly stamped metals. In the early days of cannetille, stamped metals were typically disk shaped; floral and shell motifs later became popular.

Sweet amphora gold filigree earrings. Each measuring approximately 30.4 mm. with a gross weight of 4,2 grams.

The condition is very good with negligible wear commensurate with age.

Please note that all items listed as precious metals are either marked (in which case there will be a photo clearly showing the mark) or acid tested to ensure metal purity. Unless otherwise stated, colored gemstones have not been tested. All gemstone weights and measurements are approximate.
