From the designer's earlier '80s vintage collection, Robert Lee Morris' triple leaf clip earrings in buttery gold plated finish are shimmering examples of his modernist twist on classic themes. The slightly curled leaves gather a stems where they fit flush next to the face. The leaves gracefully follow the ear both up and down, complementing the face beautifully. As you may know with Morris' early work, the lavish, gold plated finish has a rich, luxurious, buttery look and feel. Very sumptuous and distinctive. Motifs were big and bold with a modernist angle and attitude.
The clip earrings offered measure a generous approximate 2 1/4 inches x 1 1/4 inches with a 3/8 inch profile. Weight of the pair is about 42 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components original and intact. All gold plated finish intact, front and back. Earrings retain shape with no dents or improper bends. All soldering secure. Earring clips secure. Extremely clean. No damage / no repairs. As fresh as when created.
Reverse of each earring body is signed with the "ROBERT LEE MORRIS" stamp and copyright symbol preceding. This stamp is difficult to read on one of the earrings but more legible on the other. You can peruse them in the photos. Of course, you can also see that the design, materials and construction are signature vintage Robert Lee Morris characteristics.
