Pair of gold earrings with a rosette, model bird and richly decorated inverted pyramid. at the top, a five-tier rosette with a central granule, the edges of the petals bordered with fine beaded wire. The bird is made in sheet metal in two halves soldered together and attached to the base of the pyramid below with a pin. The inverted pyramid itself is made up of three superimposed friezes of spheres in sheet gold with beaded wire borders, below which is a long cone of coiled beaded wire soldered to the sheet metal underneath. each earring ends with a large granule.
