Here's real Carmen Miranda stuff - and just in time to complement the colorful, exotic fashions favored for spring and summer! You'll look delicious in these basket earrings piled high with luscious purple grapes, red apples, berries, bananas and more. They dangle about 1 1/2" below the ear and are approximately an inch wide! Better hurry and grab these or I'll decide to keep them for myself.
Probably dating from the World War II years in the 1940s, when most metals were commandeered for combat use and ladies made their own inventive accessories, they're definitely hand-crafted. Despite considerable age, the colors remain bright, the basket isn't frayed and the screw-on backs are in perfect working order. Provenance of these beauties is a New England estate.
