Sweetest heart, these ARE the cutest! Each detailed with a tiny Swallow within a stamped Japonaiserie styled frame, they date to the Aesthetic Period in Victoria's reign, when artists took interest in the culture and designs seen in Japan and other Oriental countries. A fabulous historical look, hanging from 'shepherd's crook' style wires we have had them freshly re-gilded in 18ct yellow Gold over the Silver. Alongside the full Birmingham hallmark for 1881 is the maker's mark for Vale & Co. They measure 3cms from the top of the earwire.
