Rose Bouquet Earrings Bone China Rose Posy Vintage 1960s Thorley Hand Made
This is a vintage pair of English bone china floral clip earrings in a form referred to as a Staffordshire Posy of hand made and hand painted bone china flowers.
The hand made figural flower earrings features a red, pink and yellow Rose with leaves measuring .75 of an inch in diameter.
The earrings were made by Thorley, England in the 1950-1960s and are in the original box, although that has seen better days.
The hand made bone china earrings are in excellent used vintage condition with no chips or cracks which is rare for this bone china jewelry.
Earrings of this quality and workmanship were very popular in the 1950-1960s when this was made. We watched craftsman making these at the factory workrooms in Stoke On Trent and were amazed at the skill and time it took to make each part of these flowers by hand from a lump of clay.
Almost all of the potteries have all either closed or moved production to the far east so these are seldom being made.
