Sterling German Paste Art Deco Earrings
A Jazz Age classic earring shimmies with the best. A three element articulated construction allows for freedom of movement for sixteen (16) shaped clear pastes set in glorious silver. Long and linear geometry to accent the face, very sparkling and clear white pastes show their fine facial bones with a beautiful facet structure.
Here German design was interpreted through Expressionism and the predecessor to Bauhaus. These earrings utilize the baguette cut initially introduced by Cartier in the early part of the 20th century. The shaped pastes illustrate how that form was incorporated to highlight the geometry of the earring as a long rectangular cut.
Date: Circa 1925.

Hallmarks: Germany on the removed screw fitting ear wires.
Condition: Excellent; original screw back ear fittings removed and replaced with sterling silver posts.
