Vintage Plastic Floral Screwback Earrings on Original Card
Pretty flowers of cellulose acetate plastic delicately tinted pink, blue, lavender and yellow, set in hexagons of polished goldtone, about 3/4 inch in diameter. These lovely screwback earrings are still mounted on an original card bearing the name Jan Jewels, with a price of 25 cents plus tax - how long has it been since you could get pretty earrings like these for a quarter? They don't look like they've ever been worn, though the card is pretty battered - split all the way across, bent at the corners, and stained. Still, the earrings are the important thing and they're still in mint condition. A beautiful, feminine retro look for spring and summer!
