Ca 1960, a pair of 18k yellow gold earrings hallmarked GJ&W (Georg Jensen and Wendel) in their original red leatherette case. The earrings are leaf-shaped (or possibly feathers), finely incised in matte gold with a polished gold rib showing the classic Jensen design of raised orbs and deeply incised horizontal lines. The leaf or feather has fluidity; they look as if they are rustling in the wind. The back sides are smooth with well functioning clip mechanisms. The backs are hand incised GJ&W. Under the curve of the clip, in a hard to photograph place, is stamped 0750 (18K) and a pictorial hallmark.
The little red leatherette box has a creamy velvet and silk lining. The inside of the lid is printed with a crown mark and Hofleverandor GEORG JENSEN Kobenhavn. The earrings measure 1 7/16" x 5/16" (36 x 11mm) and they weigh 7.7 grams.
The earrings are meant to be worn with the tip going up the ear. These earrings could be converted with posts for pierced ears. The earrings are in excellent condition. The exterior of the box has some scuffs.
