Magnificent Art Deco marcasite earrings in sterling, very long and grand!
A stylized flower shape is constructed to sit slightly above the surface of a domed, oval, open-worked sterling mounting; sparkling marcasites add brilliance. This beautiful pendent piece is surmounted by a decorative chain, and both hang from a flower-and-marcasite topped ear screw.
Marked sterling on the pendent. I believe that all elements are original (the rings of the key elements are soldered). The shine you see on the silver is from rhodium plating over the sterling. Measure 2-1/2" by 1/2".
These beauties are in excellent condition and date from the 1920s.
