A truly fabulous pair of earrings, in near mint condItion. There have been tucked away for many years and look as though they were rarely if ever worn. The backs or ear nuts were missing, so I added the new disc style ear nuts.
The earrings are micro-mosaic, set in a non-precious gold-colored metal bezel. There are no missing tiles or tesserae. The upper portion has a small mosaic button and post for pierced ears. The tiles are a lovely turquoise blue with a tiny pink rose design. The pieces are flush across the top - a mark of higher quality than the uneven pieces. The style and quality of the piece suggest they were made from about 1930 - 1940.
The earrings are a total 1 3/4" long, and 5/8" across at the widest point. the backs are marked FAP Made in Italy.
