I have just returned from a buying trip in Paris where I found these wonderful cut steel earrings. Unusual in form and design, they are circa 1800. They have faceted, decorative, steel elements riveted to a steel plate. The steel plate is shaped and well detailed.
They measure a long 3 1/4 inches X slightly less than 1 inch across the bottom. The condition is excellent. There is minimal wear/pitting as seen in the pictures. They are light and very comfortable to wear. The proportions are dramatic and these are ever so rare.
France, circa 1800
