These very odd vintage earrings were made in the 1950s Eames Era - when abstract Art first started to gain popularity in jewelry.
The earrings are for pierced ears and the black shapes are flat silver metal with shiny black enamel. The baroque dangles are four sided concave shapes made of glossy Turquoise Lucite; not painted. The turquoise beads are slightly larger than a cherry tomato, or about 1" long.
The earrings look big, but they are light weight to wear. The black shapes are 1 1/4" wide. The earrings are 2 3/8" long overall. The earrings are in excellent condition for age with no enamel loss, chips or scratches. Both earrings are exceptionally clean as well, including the brass wires between the beads.
