Old, intricate and decidedly detailed this pair of antique, screw back Parrot earrings from the early 1900s are just the thing for those that like a bit of wonder with their whimsy and esthetic with their antiques. Festooned with glass faux pearls and blue glass beads the Parrot within is made of copper and fastened via a thin, copper wire that can be seen from the back but not from the front. The earrings are of the screw back variety and can therefore be worn by those with pieced and non-pierced ears and are unmarked. They measure 5/8 inches in diameter and are 1 1/8 inches in length. They show their age via patina on the metal parts and a loss of luster to most of the pearls. An uncommon pair and certain to be rare if not one of a kind. Like the unusual and utilitarian? LOVE these!
