Antique Victorian Pinchbeck Bauble Hoop Earrings
A fantastic pair of late Victorian puffy hoop design 'pinchbeck' earrings. Lovingly made by hand, they are decorated with a fine engraving of elaborate scrolls which is sooo pretty. Circa 1880's, as these are hollow they are light, lovely, and very striking to wear.
The earrings measure 3.5cm from the top of the earwire. These are in good condition, but as shown in the photos, there are a couple of small places where the engraving has broken through, but this is not detrimental to continued wear.
Pinchbeck is a base metal, ie. not gold.
