Victorian Dormeuses Poissardes Earrings
We called this kind of earrings Poissardes, because they were worn by the fishwives of Paris and who played a significant role during the French Revolution. The ear wires had a typical s-shaped fish-hook style cross over and threaded through the ear back to front. One of the hollow bead presents a tiny hole however it is in good antique condition.
All our items come with either a gemmological report or a jewellery report with circa and all useful information.
