Vintage Damascene Drop Earrings with Sunflowers and Birds.
This pair of earrings has terrific detail and workmanship. Each features an oval ‘button’ style top with a flying bird surrounded by graceful scrolls. Hanging from the tops are elongated teardrop pendants, each with 3 different types of flowers in graduated sizes. They look like stylized forget me not blossoms on top, daisies in the center and sunflowers at the bottom. The scrolls and swirls from the top are repeated in the dangles.
The damascene panels are mounted on a beautiful goldtone base. The earrings are clip on style and they are a good quality set with some weight.
Each earring is marked “Made in Spain” as shown. The full length of each earring is 2” and the drop measures about 1 1/4” long.
Condition: nice patina on the front with minimal use scratches; clips works well.
Damascene jewelry has been popular for years and it has become something of a classic in every wardrobe. These will go from day to evening, casual country to formal luncheon with no problem, so they are the perfect choice for a wardrobe stretching option!
