These are some pretty neat old earrings. They are WWII era. This comes from an estate of a family that lived in Japan during the war and for some time after. These are just fantastic. The screw backs are marked Silver. I am sure they are sterling and need to be cleaned. The little figurines that hang from the earrings are little wooden dolls. They are a darling pair of Japanese earrings. They dangle 1 1/2".
