Dating to the late 18th or early 19th century, a delightful pair of antique hand faceted Cut Steel drop earrings. A scarce find, the dark twinkle of these old earrings was just so fashionable in their day. Each pair is unique and entirely hand made, the tiny faceted studs being filed by hand, they are a wonder to behold! In a design typical of their time, they are articulated at two points, every stud is riveted to the backing and they hang from their original brass wires.
For scale, they measure 6cm from the top of the earwire, the earrings themselves 5cm.
