|There is so much labor devoted to these delicate early 19th century earrings that they bring wonder to our eyes. How fine and light the hand of the jeweler was.! The tools of the period had to have been miniature to accomplish engraving on such small on the wafer-like surfaces. Napoleonic earrings are extremely rare. They are sublime and comfortable on the ear affording easy movement with the slightest turn or breeze. The work applied is admirable. The top and center shield shapes are cross hatched with dotted pin heads as are the bells suspended from the chain ends and the bottom triangle. Small gold dots and triangles frame the earrings as well. The tiny cannetille spirals add ballerina grace. Made completely by hand including the chains which have hand made link these earrings are no small wonder. The original Georgian ear wires are in place and can be changed to shepherds hooks if wished. L. 2 3/4 in. W. at widest point is 15/16ths of an inch. Two hundred plus years old and in perfect condition. We are proud to offer them|
