Really nice vintage nautical jewelry is rather hard to find. There were only few US designers who made nice nautical jewelry in the 1950-1970 eras, which is something I've collected for decades.
In the 1970s and early 1980s, carved wood nautical jewelry could be found. Carved wood nautical jewelry has disappeared as no one is making anything!
This attractive necklace and earring set is made of bright red and navy blue wood stained beads. The beads are light weight fruitwood and they are flattened disk beads about 3/8" wide. The hand carved light weight fruitwood sailboat pendant is painted in glossy white enamel with red and blue accents. The front is painted as same as the back.
The matching earrings are for pierced ears, painted the same front and back as well.
The necklace is 20" long or 50 cm. The sailboat on the necklace is 2 1/4" tall x 2 1/8" wide or 5.8 cm x 5.6 cm. The sailboat earrings are large at 2" tall x 1 3/4" wide or 5 cm x 4.4 cm. With the silver metal pierced ear wires, the earrings hang down 2 5/8" longoverall.
All pieces are in pristine microscopically clean condition with no signs of age or wear or other imperfections.
Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new presentation jewelry box.
