A pair of 14K gold Victorian era earrings depicting an enameled Lion of St. Mark. Highly detailed painting shows a woman carrying a staff, possibly a saint of a powerful historical figure. The winged lion sits behind her with a book in front of him. These were likely buttons originally and were later converted into these dangling earrings. Highly wearable and beautifully made!
