Bukharan, Enamelled Silver Earrings peacocks

 

 An exquisite dangly pair of enamelled silver earrings from Buhkara (I'm assuming as there's a very romantic Russian/Persian/Chinese feel to them ) with 2 pairs of embossed and enamelled peacocks.     

I'll clarify and call them earhooks as the hook is fixed.    

Beneath these peacocks dangle five drops of mother of pearl and pearl with small hollow silver points which could be Turkoman.   

The coloured enamelled body measures 56 mm ( excluding the hook and the dangly drops.
The ear hook is not a challenge being quiet a normal thickness. (of course you won't go bending them unnecessarily will you, it'll end in tears.)

I wouldn't polish this piece as silver only improves with age, however, when you decide to do it a careful polish with a dry "Silver Polishing Cloth" (avoiding the pearls of course) will bring up the details without removing the darker background oxides. Avoid liquid cleaners.

Age: Mid/Late last century.

Size: Length  107 mm x W  15 mm.

Weight: 22 grams
