Vintage Ivory Clip On Earrings. Elephant ivory carved into lovely flowers. The ivory was hand carved and polished, it has beautiful patina. The ivory for these earrings was imported before the ivory ban. Schraeger lines and cross hatching are visible and the earrings are a soft ivory color. Under close inspection you can see a crack in one of the earrings. It is not very noticeable; please see the pictures. Some collectors like the presence of cracks, which are common in older ivory. The cracks are another indicator of authenticity. They have gold tone clip on backs that are hinged and work well.
- Circa 1950's
- Pre-Ban Ivory
- Size: 1½ x 6/8 inches
