Selro, named in honor of owner Paul Selenger's mother, Rose, was founded in the late 1940s, existing until the mid '70s. It's sister company, Selini, was christened a bit later. Much has been written about Selro's lines, including it's variously called Asian / African princess and Noh devil face / mask jewelry, as well as it's confetti and carved floral designs and bolo or lariat style necklaces. The Eastern / Asian / Oriental inspired set presented, unsigned, yet undeniably Selro, features carved floral and foliage panels of faux coral in a red shade, set in Selro's distinctive silver tone metal. Many of you will recognize the signature Selro design, materials and construction, all characteristic of this artistic company's work. Notice the bilateral herringbone chains, teardrop charmed extension chain, back braced panels, telltale connections -- Selro at it's finest. All original and correct in pristine vintage condition.
The set includes the five carved thermoset panel necklace, adjustable to about 17 1/2 inches. Decorative center spans approximately 8 inches x 1 inch with a 1/4 inch thickness. Screw back earrings complete the demi, at about 2 1/2 inches long x 3/4 inch wide. Earrings' lobe portions are set with faux coral cabochons. Carved, imitation coral panels are approximately 34 millimeters x 15 millimeters. Weight of the necklace and earrings set is about 74 grams.
