    Hello everyone.
    This set is a recent purchase and I love it!
    I bought it because it is so unusual, and I don't have anything else like it in my collection.
    The seller dated it 1950s and seems to be a silver tone alloy which has perhaps been cold painted as some of the paint has worn off.
    Overall I think the condition is really good and to have the original earrings is a bonus!
    This set isn't signed unfortunately, so I have no idea where it might have been made.
    Hope you like my new little treasure and would love to hear your thoughts on it, thanks Judy

      Oh, Judy! They are sweet, unusual to get the set :-)
      Isn't it funny to wear earrings which have earrings themselves ;-D

      These are so great Judy, just beautiful! Love the neck rings and water jug on head, such an evocative piece. I would definitely date this from the fifties by the style of the ear clips

      Such a very unique set Judy!

      Oh Judy...
      Magnificent set of Blackamoor!
      This jewelry has been made for centuries in Venice, as I'm sure you already know...
      I read somewhere they were used as amulets for good luck...and to ward off pirates!

      This has always reminded me of Siam jewelry which was done in Silver tho this is somewhat bigger. But now that I look at Siam it is more like I remembered and not like this at all.
    29. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 1 year ago
      Hello Clockerman, thanks very much for taking the time to look and love :-)
    30. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 1 year ago
      You are right Phil, and Siam older pieces are much better quality than these blackamoor pieces! :-)
