These are fine, rare earrings from the Art Nouveau era circa 1900. They are monochromatic earrings reminiscent of niello work, with ornate leaf and scroll decoration in silver relief over a black japanned background. The leaf shape is a further reference to the Nouveau love of natural form. There is black enamelled fixtures with original silver wires. The silver is unmarked, but tests to at least 800, which indicates German origin.

Dimensions are 2 1/4 inches from the ear piercing; the leaf earring is 1 1/4 in length x 5/8 inch across; weight is 5.6 grams. Condition is fine with minimal antique wear and good patina. There is a small worn mark to the back of one earring to note.

A beautiful, original pair of antique earrings.
