A must for every vintage jewelry collector is a pair of gold doorknockers. These bold, fierce lions by Mimi di N (Princess Mimi di Niscemi) are a true classic.
Vintage gold plated metal, on clips. Marked Mimi di N (1960-90's). Measures 1.5" tall, 1" wide. Very good condition with slight imperfections on the hoops and wear to the finish at the back where they clip to the ear - the prior owner rocked these babies often and well!
Shown on a reprint of "Lion, Felis leo," originally drawn by J. Wolf and colored by J. Smit one hundred years before the making of these earrings. King of the Jungle, the African Lion, is now classified as Panthera leo.
