These are super large and very impressive earrings. I have photographed these in hand to give you a good feel for their size. I have not seen another pair like these before.
They are hollow and unmarked however have professionally tested for Sterling Silver. They are for pierced ears and have threaded posts. The backs are original and once they are put on and the backs are screwed into place, they will never be lost. The balls measure 3/4" x 3/4". They are in pristine vintage condition with no apologies to be made. Each earring weighs exactly 3 grams for a total of 6 grams total weight. That is a very comfortable weight and will not weigh the ears down. I am unsure of who made these as they do not carry any hallmarks..
I believe possibly these are either Mexican or Native American. Whoever made them did an outstanding job. These are Circa 1940 and sit right on the Art Deco / Retro period. These are absolutely unique and unusual and as I have said, I have never seen anything like them before. Questions are always welcome and encouraged.
