Victorian French enamel Cherub Angel earrings C. 1860's. The earrings are 15mm X 10.5mm, total weight 3.1 grams. The face of the earrings is made of 14K gold (acid tested). Enamel cartouches are 10mm X 6mm with Cherubs. The cartouches are surrounded with prong set seed pearls. Original clasps were replaced with gold filled screw backs, which are stamped 1/20 12K GF (see photos).
Excellent condition commensurate with age.
I believe that the cherubs are actually Psyché et l'Amour (Psyche and Amor). The story about Psyche and Amor concerns of obstacles to their love and their ultimate union in a sacred marriage.
