I couldn't find ANY photos of these earrings. Clearly stamped "SIAM STERLING" on the bottom. 1 1/2" long and 1/2" wide.
I wonder if they are 1940s .....or earlier.
"In 1939, Siam had its name changed to Thailand by the Fascist leader Field Marshal Plaek Pibulsonggram out of nationalism and, some believe, racism. The name means "Land of the Free" and reflects the fact that it is the only country in Southeast Asia that was never colonized. It was known as Siam from 1945-1949 and then was renamed to Thailand again in 1949."
