A superb pair of antique Victorian English drop earrings; beautifully hand carved from one-piece natural boxwood to depict roses and leaves. Wonderfully modelled with pierced branch sections and excellent 3d forced perspective, they are complete with their apparently original yellow metal wires for pierced ears. They date from around 1870/80 and are in excellent, fully wearable condition throughout, with one tiny area of loss to one leaf. They weigh 3.6 grams together and have a total drop of 2 ½ inches.The final photo shows them with a US penny (1 cent) coin for scale, which measures 19 mm / ¾ of an inch diameter.
