Title Vtg Egyptian King Tut Earrings Neiger Red German Glass Stones Clip Trade Beads
Item Number tut654
At the time I created this set for the Luxor I could not obtain a regular supply of the big red glass stones nor the antique red trade beads. I think I made perhaps only 6 or 7 sets of this one. This is the last set I have. These type of hand made items where showcased as opposed to being put on a display rack because they were so limited. The vintage Neiger type red cabs came out of an old warehouse in Providence at that time. The red drops are antique red trade beads. They matched up well but the trade beads were hit or miss in supply. Best guess on dating them would be middle 1800's. Italian in nature. This set measures 3.5 inches long. Each earring weighs 15.4 grams. The clip backs - I replace the pads with new slip on comfort pads. They also measure 1.5 inches wide. Once sold gone forever.
