Chrysoprase, Carnelian & Onyx Grape Art Deco Earrings
2 1/2" x 5/8"
Very good (mild verdigris on one earring as shown in last photo)
These brass earrings feature chrysoprase, carnelian and onyx glass grapes beneath beautifully detailed leaves and flowers with onyx glass bead centers. Even the back of each earring is adorned with a large textured leaf. The decoration is wonderful, and the patina is warm. Although bunches of grapes were a common motif in early 20th century jewelry, I’ve never seen anything like these splendid, all-original screw-back earrings before. These earrings can be modified for pierced ears.
