Victorian Etruscan Revival Earrings, Blue Enamel 15ct Torpedo Shape Cannetille Design, 15k Circa 1870s.Add to Wishlist
Victorian torpedo shaped 15ct drop earrings. These long drop earrings are tapered in shape with an applied wire work in a filigree design. Kidney shaped ear wires are attached to a half sphere adorned with cannetille work. Swinging from this is a long torpedo shaped drop decorated to the front and accented with vivid royal blue enamel. A small ball at the base of the drop completes the look. As is typical, these are puffed in shape meaning that they are hallow in the centre. Circa 1870s - 1880s, European in origin.
Condition: very good, all cannetille work is intact, the enamel is present, only minor wear consummate with age.
Stamped 15c, tested and assessed as 15 carat gold. There are a couple other marks on the ear wires we've been unable to identify.
Measure approx 5.15 cm / 2 inches long and 9.3 mm wide at widest point.
Weigh 4.6 grams total.
