Hello and thank you for your interest in our inventory. Today I’m pleased to offer you this FABULOUS Par of Handmade Mexican Sterling Silver Love Bird Earrings. These earrings are very interesting for a number of reasons. First of all these earrings have a spring loaded clasp-on. Not posts, screw-backs or clip-ons. Which makes them very rare. Second, when making the Love Birds the silversmith choose to use a technique called repousse’. Repousse’ is performed to create decoration in a relief method. The back of the Love Birds have been hammered or pushed to create the raised or embossed design. Stampwork or chisel-work adds wonderful definition to the birds. And third of all, is who made these earrings. I cannot tell you for sure who made them. I can tell you that they are marked. And that it reads MADE IN MEXICO STERLING and what appears to be the top part of a WS. The font in the hallmark is the same font that William Spratling used in the 1930-40s. You decide. Never the less, These are phenomenal earrings that should be in your collection…
GREAT WITH A PAR OF JEANS OR YOU CAN DRESS IT UP FOR THAT SPECIAL OCCASION!
