A beautiful Victorian demi parure, a both classic and unusual example, comprising earrings and a brooch. The design is classic Victorian with floral, butterfly and scroll motifs; each piece suspends a small gold ball. What’s unusual is that, though the set appears to be gold on silver, the base tests at 14 carat; along with enamel decorations, the gold is treated to look dark silver. The attention to detail is amazing: the centers of each piece are textured and the edges carved. Wonderful condition; under 10x loupe, one enamel spot is chipped on one earring; the balls have some dents and scratches. Brooch measures 1 1/4” wide; earrings are 1 1/2” long from top of hook to ball.
