Art Deco Earrings in Brick Red and Black Galalith with Marcasites, Sterling, Germany
Art Deco galaith earrings with marcasites in silver, marked Sterling, Germany. These beauties date from the 1930s and feature an open ring, a long pendent element, a tear shaped bottom bead, and three marcasites. They are set in sterling silver. The fancy ear screws hold a black glass faceted bead and a marcasite, providing the connecting mounting for the lower portion.
The red galaith is a rich brick red in color, not true red. The rings show a little surface wear and there is a tiny flake at one connecting hole at the top of the black pendent. Close examination reveals that one of the top beads is a replacement but you won't notice it. They measure 2-3/4" by 3/8" and each earring weighs 3g.
These are stunning-- and I've never seen another pair like them.
Gender: Female, Age Group: Adult, Color: Black/Red/Silver, Size: 2-3/4" x 3/8"
