Queen Anne paste earrings
Rather luscious ‘Queen Anne’ earrings, circa 1760. Vibrant magenta paste is set over cerise foil in closed back gilt metal settings. The reverse ear fittings which were rather thick have been replaced by gold ear wires and I do have the original fittings. They measure 3/4 of an inch by 3/4 of an inch. Fabulous colour, dazzling in sunlight and in immaculate condition.
