Amazing pair of Egyptian revival bronze earrings C. mid 1800's.
Each of the earrings features two well crafted sphinx overlays positioned
head to head at 180 degrees. They placed on the bronze high dome
just over 1" diameter. The rings are 1 5/8" long
including 14K gold shepherd hook clasps.
There is no hallmarks, the hooks tested 14K gold.
They are a later addition to the earrings converted from
a pair of rare Victorian brass buttons.
Excellent antique condition commensurate with age.
Bronze covered with beautiful antique patina.
