Here's real Carmen Miranda stuff, just in time to complement the colorful, exotic fashions favored for warm weather. You'll look delicious in these earrings formed like seashell cornucopias packed with luscious strawberries, grapes, bananas and more. Being of celluloid, they're extremely lightweight and comfortable to wear (not to mention highly collectible). Size is about 1 1/4 inches by 1 inch and condition is nice, relative to age and the delicacy of the material. There are lost grapes (easy to hide by retouching the color) and a few teensy cracks it takes high magnification to notice. The shells show no losses at all and the silver metal screwbacks show virtually no wear. If perfect, of course they'd be worth $100 more. Provenance of these cutie-pies is a Deep South estate.

There's no charge for insured U.S. shipping and gift-wrap is always free when desired. Please e-mail to confirm availability, order or request more photos. Thanks for looking!
