***** NOW REDUCED BY $200  ~  TO  $725 FOR THE 3 PIECE SUITE  ~  WITH THE ‘PIERCED EARRINGS’  BEING WORTH THAT PRICE ALONE  *****

Beautifully hand carved ivory **   and quality German sterling silver marcasite floral themed brooch & earrings {for pierced ears} set in fine original condition.

Have a close look at the naturalistic hand carved chrysanthemum!     Skillfully done using rudimentary tools & a great deal of patience.

** The Indian ivory would have been carved by  Indian craftsmen to sell to the English & European market via wholesalers  to provide a living for themselves. {all legally & above board , subsistence living for Local Indian artisans using local materials as they had done for thousands of years ,  prior to the ‘Cities agreement’ being passed in the 1940’s banning the ivory trade of items made AFTER that date ,  {Aprrox;  1943 from memory}.

With the legally exported carved Ivory pieces then being purchased by jewellers in various locales in Europe , U.K.  etc  to add their own individual creativity to their Indian colleagues.     With the end result being an example such as this Superb Marcasite Ivory St.Silver Vintage Earrings & Brooch Set from the 1930’s~40’s.

Remaining in excellent condition still after some 80 years ,  the brooch would look particularly stunning worn over black  &  when worn with the truly beautiful earrings ……  I would suggest to be prepared for compliments!

Note the beautifully realistic lines to the leaves ,   with the larger piece being a  particularly attractive shape ,  lines  & overall design.

An absolute ‘must have’  for the avid marcasite collector ,  the ivory collector  &  of course those that simply love  owning & wearing beautiful and  unique vintage jewellery!     The earrings add’s another dimension & making the set a far more desirable acquisition!

This one is definitely not one that you could expect to see again anytime soon  ~   especially at the price being sold for here ………….  it must offer excellent value for money ,   especially when compared to what Sydney or Melbourne  galleries will charge for the same set  and we actually encourage you to compare for yourself!
