Georgian Filigree Poissarde Earrings

$5,400.00


Description

DATE: Georgian, c.1820

An astonishing pair of Georgian poissarde earrings in 18 karat gold. They date from the early 19th Century, circa 1820, and feature the most incredible fine filigree and ropework. Each one features five articulated, highly domed drops dangling from a central body adorned with grape bunches and cones, which itself hangs from the poissarde tops. And those little hoops at the top: designed to clip on to your wig (!), holding it firmly in place. They're Southern Italian and remain in great condition given their age and nature.
