Bukharan, Enamelled Silver Earrings

 An exquisite dangly pair of enamelled, lightly gilt 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, the larger pair  being ridden with bridals by a dark tanned figure (?)     

I'll clarify and call them earhooks as the hook is fixed and set with a Turquoise teardrop which is repeated between the larger peacocks.     

Beneath these peacocks dangle five drops of red coral 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  116 mm x W  40 mm.

Weight: 25 grams
