Art Deco rare Jewel-tone rhinestone gilded pierced domed metal clip-on earrings from the 1930's; these are in very good vintage condition. Certainly these were inspired by the popular Thief of Baghdad genera of jewelry of the 1930's and early 1940's. These beauties bear the patent number 1967965 on the back side of each of their ornately scrolled Art Deco clip backs and this patent was issued to Eugene Morehouse on July 24, 1934 for the clips design. They function beautifully and in my opinion are quite comfortable to wear for all the large size of the earrings and are striking, the rhinestones are all in sparkling condition, none are dead or dull. The earrings measure a large and respectable 1 1/4 inches in diameter by 1/2 inch proud! There is some light desirable age appropriate mellowing with light wear to the metal's finish, nothing in my opinion that detracts from these lovelies stunning appeal (as 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 cleaning if needed, but no attempt will be made to cover up their age – your questions about a specific item for sale in my shop are always welcome. A timeless addition to your accessories wardrobe which will add a striking stand-alone statement and a perfect accessory for so many occasions, seasons, events and ensembles, not to mention WOW .... wearable ART!
