Vintage Egyptian REVIVAL Earrings RED bakelite SNAKE Drop

Unavailable
These are some gorgeous really unusual RED earrings that look like they might be bakelite. , . These are French wire lever back earrings with gilt brass snakes that hold the double loops. The length is 3 ¼" The bottom beads are large and odd shaped, not round. It has all the characteristics of a  cherry bakelite. I have been told that some bakelite is harder to test than others and I guarantee this is OLD. Tthey are greasy like bakelite and unlike celluloid or plastic. The patina on this is rich and the earrings are in great condition. Truly something you rarely see and a must for higher end collectors.   VintageSparkles offers Layaway on all our pieces regardless of which site it comes from.All layaway payments will need to be in the form of a check or money order only.
