A delightful and superbly rare pair of French acorn earrings, these novel baubles exhibit the finest Napoleonic work… in Pomponne! The most used word at the Curio this week, Pomponne is the french equivalent of Pinchbeck and is very rare— especially from this period! With the glass luster’d pearl forming the acorn, the cardsharp frame, and herringbone top of the earring- these are simply to die for, and look amazing on!
They’ve been priced to sell and will not be here long 😍
