Aqua & Gold Chinese Symbol Vintage Tin Earrings
These 2 slightly different sets of earrings were created from a single round candy tin in aqua blue with a contrasting black lid. The wider pair utilizes the sections of the tin that listed ingredients & weight. The narrower pair are solely created from the background aqua color of the tin, with no characters or designs on it. Both have antique brass cutouts with a Chinese symbol has been riveted to each tin. Brass chain and leverback ear hooks.
Set #1: Wider with lettering: 3" long and 2 1/8" wide.
Set #2: Narrow with plain aqua background: 3 1/4" long and 1 7/8" wide.
PLEASE NOTE: Because these pieces are made from vintage tins, the metal surface may be uneven and/or have imperfections, tiny dings or scratches. To me, this is part of the piece's history. Please look carefully at the photos before purchasing so you know what imperfections exist, & so you are happy with your purchase!
