Antique lava gold earrings
Lava jewellery was a must souvenir among the Grand Tour Tourist of 19th century in Italy. In different colours, always in classical subjects sometimes they achieved a masterpiece quality for the detailed hand-work engraving.
This pair of antique earrings were part of a collection of objects of the Grand Tour. We remained surprised from the very unusual subject and the detailed hand-carving of the lava amphoras. Lovely the pearls coming down like water. A typical special Grand Tour souvenir. From Neaples. End of 19th century. 14K gold. It is in perfect condition.
