Vintage Double Hoop Gutta Percha Long Dangle Earrings
Authentic antique Victorian double hoop earrings made from hand-carved gutta percha, circa 1860s. Each earring has a three-dimensional half floral carved to with two graduated round hoops swaying below. While these earrings were for mourning almost 150 years ago, they are a beautiful accessory for today's wardrobe.

Measurements: 2.5 inches long and 1.5 inch wide at the hoop
Weight: 4.6 grams together - very light on the ears
Date: Circa 1860s - Civil War era
Condition: Very good with no chips or nicks to the gutta percha. The sterling silver screw backs appear to be replacements but could easily have a hook for pierced ears. A most unique set of antique earrings!
