A pair of earrings by the American designer Laurel Burch (1945-2007) made of cast silver tone base metal and embellished with a small triangular sheet, enameled and raised. Possibly the metal is silver or silver alloy; the metal discolors rapidly and has the unpolished silver patina look. The earrings have a double triangular shape. The decoration features an orchid in ochre, pink and purple colors on a white background (cloisonné enamel style). Studs (probably made of surgical steel) and clips in curved wire style, all in good working condition. The earrings are marked “© Laurel Burch” on the back sides, without a title. These are Burch earrings from the 1970s-1980s. The designer went to China in 1971 and discovered there the cloisonné enamel; with this technique she created paintings and had the designs made into earrings. In 1979 she started Laurel Burch Inc. In the 1990s Burch licensed her designs to several companies that now make and distribute her creations worldwide. Good vintage condition; the metal has a nice dark and somewhat reddish patina. Hard to find items; special because of nice cloisonné enamel and double closures.
