Vintage Scandinavian Modernist Cat Earrings | Solid Silver & Agate
A truly fabulous pair of vintage stud earrings in a mid-century Scandinavian style. Being handmade each is unique: one is set with black onyx agate eyes, the other with agates possessing a natural amber stripe, giving a real cat’s eye effect when held to the light.
The earrings are possibly Danish and dating to the 1960s: they are unmarked on the reverse but have been professionally tested as 900 silver. The butterfly backs fit well (marked as 925 for sterling silver). They have been thoroughly and professionally cleaned and polished with a sympathetic touch to retain the patina.
These earrings are presented in a luxury ribboned box, ready to make an amazing gift for a cat-loving vintage jewellery collector.
Approximate Dimensions: 1.4cm x 1.3cm (at the longest/widest point)
