Made of sterling silver with a gold vermeil wash, the dimensional pieces are in the form of layered pansy blossoms, with the petals finished in vibrant vitreous glass (kiln-fired) enamel in luminous shades of pearly white, lavender and on the bigger petals a rich purple. The brooch measures about 1 7/8" by 1 3/4" and has a safety pin closure. The earrings have secure clip backs and measure 0.9 inches x 0.9 inches.
All pieces are marked D-A NORWAY STERLING 925S. A matching set like this is rare!
Both enamel and gilding are near perfect and left unpolished. The brooch has a pin size flaw at indent between petals at base of flower/the light colored part of flower.
One earring has an area of slight thinning/irregularity of the enamel on base of left petal/ light colored part of flower. The brooch is made to wear with the dark petals pointing up, but can be worn opposite as well.
The earrings are made to clip on ear so the dark petals are pointing upwards. The first photos give the best match of color, yet they do not convey the full beauty of the light pearly pink hue or the full depth of the colors. The light spots in the purple enamel on the picture are reflection spots, not flaws in the enamel... Not so easy to do these pieces justice in photographs! Kindly ask all questions you may have prior to purchasing.
