Vauxhall glass was made at the London Vauxhall Glassworks in the 18th and 19th century.
These mirrored pieces of glass were an early form of costume jewelry, and, at a dance or a ball, would sparkle much like diamonds.
Cut steel was used much in the same way.
These are likely Georgian, but may be a bit later.
When worn in the hair, they make a lovely decoration, and are difficult to find as a pair and in nice condition.
Condition: Minor flaws in glass, but otherwise fine for the rarity.
Size: 3 1/2 inches long. Mirrored tops are 1 1/8 inches across.
