These Georgian black dot Paste "Day and Night" drop earrings are in wonderful antique condition, especially considering they are around 200 years old! The Pastes are brilliant with no signs of ageing to their foiled backs. The SIlver is bright with some light patina adding to their antique charm. There is some minor wear, inc. a tiny chip to one of the Pastes and the Gold gilt is worn on the back of the pear drops.
It's worth noting that the two sections are likely to not be original to each other but they are a good match.
A highly collectable piece of Georgian history ready to be worn with pride for many more years to come.
