Piece #23 of 100:
Boy, oh boy! I should have worn these last week when we went wine tasting in Sonoma! These vintage silvertone earrings are marked Celebrity, which dates them from the 1950s, up to the middle of the 1970s. Just looking at the clip and the design, I would date these from the fifties or sixties, no newer. In Costume Jewelry 101, Julia C. Carroll says this New York based company sold their jewelry through home parties. I can just imagine Mom at a costume jewelry home party. Oh my, my, my!! Of course, there is the possibility that she acquired these at a garage sale. I’ll never know.
