Basket Full: Georgian Day Night Earrings
Long in the tradition of the Georgian era, this pair of gilt metal earrings will charm even the most jaded connoisseur of whimsy. In addition, the three part earrings are of the day night genre. Lace-like metal work characterizes a small wire basket with a twisted rope border and handle. Set within a series of natural coral beads on wire emulate little tomatoes still on the vine.
Above is a gilt wreath set within a wide strap fashioned in a similar manner as the basket. A removable halved globe of woven gilt metal with corded rope border suspends the carry-all with basket. Back to front ear wires finish the utterly delectable earrings.
Date: Circa 1840.
Measurements: 2-1/8 inches (5.4 cm) in length including ear wire by 9/16 of an inch (1.5 cm) at the widest. Weight of 6.8 grams (4.4 dwt) for the pair.
Condition: Excellent; a few minute break to the lace like metal work, coral beads may be a later addition.
Origin: Most likely European.
