Early 19th Century Lava Cameo Night & Day Drop Earrings



A pair of beautifully carved lava cameo earrings. The drops are carved to depict “Night and Day” with clouds beneath respectively, and with a cherub’s head above each one. The tops are also “Night and Day” with shell motifs above. They are in excellent condition and were made circa 1820-1830 in Naples for the burgeoning “Grand Tour” travellers.
