A wonderful set of earrings and matching brooch in the original case. They were made circa 1880 and are in mint condition. The Victorian craftsman excelled at Etruscan Revival work. The well known jeweller Castellani led the way by claiming to have found the answer to the secret jewellery techniques of the Etruscans in a remote area of the Apennines. He went on to produce many amazing replicas of the jewels discovered in the excavations of these ancient civilisations. The revival of ancient techniques to create matte and shiny surfaces, depth and relief were provided by corded wire, filigree and granulation. A very time consuming task that would be very expensive to replicate these days. The case is Moroccan leather with a blue silk and dark blue velvet interior
