Another unusual item from Dotty Lee's Treasures. In the mid-1950's these earrings with dangling tiny little door hinges were a gift to my mother from a couple who had their own cabinet-making business in Laurel, DE and I believe they must have ordered them from a catalog with novelties related to their cabinet-making. I have never seen another pair like them.
The little hinges actually open and close. Just the hinge is ½-inch tall by 1/4-inch wide. Measuring the whole thing they are 7/8-inch top to bottom. Just adorable.
