Vintage Sterling Silver Reverse Painted Crystal Equestrian Earrings
A lovely pair of reverse crystal equestrian earrings featuring a horse head-portrait. The profile of the horse has been reverse-molded, then painted. It is similar to the carved crystal technique that was so popular in the 1920's that gives the subject depicted a three dimensional quality. The detail on the horse head has nice rendered lines and a variety of deep browns with soft blended colors. The earrings are backed onto a sterling silver horse shoe form; these are pierced stud back earrings in great vintage condition.
The earrings measure approximately 3/8 x 5/8 inches. They weigh approximately 7.8 grams together. Marked Sterling. Perfect vintage item for an equestrian collection or a horse enthusiast. These earrings are a great unisex item. Circa 1940.
