David Howell – Wrought Iron Acanthus Earrings


A wrought iron grill with a stylized acanthus leaf was the inspiration for these earrings. This grill was made for a neo-classical building in the 1930’s, but this ornamental motif has a long history. It was first used by the Greeks in the 5th century BC on temple roof ornaments, in wall friezes and on the capital of the Corinthian column.

Solid brass, electro-plated with non-tarnishing silver finish, ear wires are hypo-allergenic. Hangs approx. 2″ (Gift Boxed with Provenance Card).
