A beautiful pair of antique Victorian mourning earrings.

This gives the earrings almost a floral look.

They have post backs, both marked 9ct and gold butterfly fasteners, these are a replacement and have been replaced with glue which can be seen at the back.

Mid Victorian era, c1870's

Condition:
Very good used condition overall, some minor surface wear commensurate with age, the replaced posts have been done rather messily, probably a home made job and glue residue can be seen at the back, cannot be seen at the front though, a few tiny straying hairs.
