Vintage Marino Mfg. Co.'s golden oval floral Victorian Revival earrings with honey topaz rhinestone accents are being offered for your consideration. These lovely realistic earrings are in excellent vintage condition.
Marino Mfg. Co. was in business in Pawtucket RI. from 1932 - ?, we do not come across this name often and we have found it to be well made and it should not be confused with another company by the same name, whose mark is spelled in block letters, rather than script that came along later, in 1957.
The earrings were created to resemble the Victorian gold faced floral applique style with small semi-precious stones accenting the earrings of the era, in this case sparkling rhinestones are used. These measure 3/4 inch by 1/2 inch in keeping with Victorian size too; their properly functioning screw back knobs are signed, Marino, in script. These display desirable age appropriate mellowing with light wear to the finish, nothing in my opinion which detracts from their stunning appeal (some might consider small signs of vintage use undesirable), I revel in a find like this as proof that affirms the age and authenticity of the pieces, they will receive a gentle professional hand cleaning, if needed, but no attempt will be made to cover up their vintage previous 50 plus beautiful years of life. Your questions about a specific item for sale in my shop are always welcome. Classy and classic are written all over these stand alone beauties for your accessories wardrobe! (J3360)
