Antique Coral Amphora Drop Earrings

Fabulous example of Victorian carved coral drop earrings. The central amphora shape is delicately carved in a most beautiful salmon color along with 2 side drops that dangle gently beside it. All of this is suspended from a carved scroll at the top and a smaller scroll above that giving these earrings a beautiful sense of proportion and detail.
The carving on all the parts is exceptional and very refined. The color of the coral is beautifully matched between both sides. Truly done by a fine craftsman in the Victorian age. The wires at the top are 14KT gold and were probably added later. These earrings are most probably from about 1860 to 1885. The use of coral and amphora style was very popular then. Not marked but tested. 1.25 inches long by 1/2 an inch in width.
English in origin.
