Victorian Gilded Green Bead Earrings

Stunning antique gilded 900 silver green bead earrings. They are back fastening. Era: Possibly 1840 - 1848. 

The style is very 'Biedermeier' which would place them before 1848, however the style continued on so they could also be a little later, anywhere up until 1900 or even early 20th century. (The lack of wear on the hallmarks suggests they are not as old as the Biedermeier era, although they definitely have the style. The Biedermeier period in Germany (1815-1848) was an amazing period during which the arts and beauty flourished. The styles were influenced by the courtly styles of the French Rococo movement.)
