Red Flower Tin Lithograph & Aluminum Disc Earrings

Regular price $15.00

These earrings are made from discs I cut out of vintage tin lithograph scraps & aluminum, & then domed. Lithography is a method of printing that dates back to the 1790s.  During the early & mid-20th century, lithography was used to produce brightly colored tin that was used in toys, TV trays, lunch boxes, candy containers, doll houses & other items.  The earrings measure 1” from the base of the earring wires, which are silvertone.
