Exceptional 19th century articulated earrings, probably tortoise shell and probably intended for mourning. The design is charming: a flower-like disc is suspended from an arched cathedral top. What makes these so unusual is the fact that they are very delicately painted: little green and white dots on the disc, and red, gold and white above. There’s wear to the paint but, it’s a lovely touch. Measure 2 1/4” from hook to tip.
