FOLIATE HEART EARRINGS from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC  - Stamped "MMA 1993" on back. Finely cast pewter with 24 karat gold plating and stainless steel posts. 

Original paperwork included. Text on it reads as follows:

FOLIATE HEART adapted from a roundel
possibly North Spain, ca. 1180-1200
The rhythmic linear design of this heart motif reflects the lively spirit that is characteristic of the late Romanesque style. The design was inspired by the decoration on a late 12th-century roundel of gilt copper with champlevé
enamel. The Museum's adaptation is cast in pewter,
electroplated with 24 karat gold, and antiqued.

THE ART OF MEDIEVAL SPAIN A.D. 500-1200

Earrings are in excellent vintage condition. They have been cleaned and polished, and the original plastic earring backs have been replaced with new ones. The top of original Met store gift box has a stain; small hole in original paperwork - see photos.

DIMENSIONS: Approx 1 3/8" from top to bottom of earring.
