1960s Paper Sphere Bouncy Drop Screwback Earrings


Shipping to United States: $4.25

These unique earrings are filled with vintage charm and playful movement!

These 1960s were passed down through generations of a Vermont family with lots of history. They are made from a painted paper mache or cardboard material with brass hardware.

The yellow-green spheres dangle from a brass chain and they are very lightweight, allowing them to bounce and sway with movement. The earrings have screw on backings and are comfortable to wear.

The spheres measure about 1 inch big, and the earrings hang approximately 2 inches long.

Please note that there are a few areas that show their age. Most notably there are a couple areas on the spheres where the paint has come off (see close-up photos) and the brass hardware has a bit of patina to it. I think this adds loads of vintage character! Overall, these earrings are in good vintage condition and are totally wearable as-is.
