Divine pair of vintage 1940's Italian Murano art glass earrings in the most gorgeous color! These are a quintessential example of the beauty in high end Murano glass. The color is a very RARE and desirable celestial blue with aventurine (23 K gold) done in a sommerso treatment to the glass. The design is intriguing as the pattern reiterates the celestial theme with clouds. Interestingly these earrings came from an estate in Paris and the sterling silver fittings are hallmarked with the French Assay mark for silver which is a Boar's head, as well as a lozenge shaped maker's mark. Approximately 1" in diameter with comfortable clip on backs for a secure fit. My best guess is that these were commissioned for a high end French jewelry store whereby the glass was imported from Italy and assembled with the sterling fittings in France. They very well could be earlier than the 1940's. A simply exquisite example of fine Italian art glass. These would be a beautiful compliment to a silk summer dress. Che Bella ! (How beautiful!)
