|Cut Steel Jewelry combined with jet, onyx, Wedgewood, enamel or mother-of-pearl rarely comes along. These very early ear drops are girandole form, that is they have three hanging parts. The steel bits are hand cut, faceted and polished but the bits are a tour d'force of varied shapes. Central is a glistening mother of pearl oval on which is a forget-me-not has been set. This small flower broadcasts the message known in the language of flowers, "think of me". All silver setting. Original back to front ear wires are in place. They can be changed to shepherds hooks if the buyer so declares. Fine condition of which you and we can be proud. The tarnished spots on the drops cannot be seen with the eye or with a loup. It is a photographic phenomenon. Same is true of the tan color on the mother of pearl. There is no rust. Length 1 3/4 in.|
