Emerald & Filigree Czech Art Deco Earrings
2 1/4" x 1/2"
Faceted baguette-shaped emerald-glass stones interspersed with pale-brass-filigree and flowers form these Art Deco pendant earrings that look very Czech to me. This pair is in all-original condition with screw-backs. The length is superb. These earrings look lovely with my emerald Art Deco bracelet – scroll down to see it. Post-script: A bride bought these earrings and one of my emerald Art Deco bracelets to wear on her wedding day — I still have the bracelet below for sale.
- ArchivesThis vintage line bracelet by Otis features faceted, square-cut emerald-glass stones channel-set in rhodium-plated sterling silver. The piece is finished with engraved edges and a diamanté-encrusted fold-over clasp. The color of the emeralds is rich and lush. The superb articulation speaks to the high-quality construction of the piece, which was the same as that of Wachenheimer Brothers. (Read about their connection with Otis.) Line bracelets were all the rage in the 1920s-1930s and were typically worn in multiples. You could wear this one with another line bracelet by the same maker or with a filigree bracelet with emeralds, as shown in the last images. I was delighted to see this jewel worn by a model on the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019! She was also adorned with a necklace and earrings, which are among the coordinating pieces shown below. Can you pick out the other runway jewels?USD$275.00
