1980s Chanel Button Clip On Earrings
Large beautiful vintage Coco Chanel 80's black button and gold plated earrings. The Chanel signature inside the oval cartouche is the mark used by the House of Chanel on couture jewelry pieces. The numbers signify the collection design is by Victoire de Castellane who was the head designer for Chanel from 1986-89. The number 23 represents the season 23. The number system started with 23 & ended with season number 29.
Both earrings are signed on the back. They are clip-backs which work great & hold tight. The earrings measure 1 1/2" across & 5" around the rim. They are in excellent gently used condition-not perfect-I have found a little plating loss but you would need a loupe to see it since the gold plate is so bright. marked Chanel 23 made in france on each earring.
