Item Description:

Selro Selini unsigned necklace and earrings set with very detailed, molded Bacchus faces appears to be early creation by Paul Selenger in the 1940s. Bacchus is known as the Roman god of wine and intoxication, fertility and the theater.  This stunning set features molded, translucent faces of the bearded god, also known as Dionysis to the Greeks.  The Bacchanalia orgies took place in Rome around 200 BCE.  The necklace set features a central motif of grapes and grape leaves with a drop featuring the molded face of this god of wine accented with pink rhinestones and a small simulated pearl.  The necklace is attached to a textured, flat chain and has a period box clasp closure, which is unlike most of the later Selro Selini pieces; however, we have found another attribution for a necklace with the same type of clasp.  The necklace measures approximately 15-1/2" closed and has a 2-3/4" central drop.  The face on the necklace measures 1-5/16 x 1" and it is larger than those on the earrings, which are approximately 7/8 x 5/8."  The matching earrings measure 1 x 1" with screw backs.  The right earring in our close up picture of the earrings shows the translucence of the set on the right earring where the metal backing shows through the molded face.  The set is in Very Good/Excellent Condition with some age apparent on the back of the set which may just need a cleaning.  We offer it to you as found.  We have spent much time researching this set and feel confident in our attribution based on the use of the molded faces motif, the use of flat, decorated chain, the decorative grape section suspending the drop and the use of rhinestone and simulated pearl accents, all in the Selro Selini tradition.  We believe this is a very rare and early set and wonder how many were produced and how many may have survived as we have never seen another.  Selro, Selini collectors will be certain to want to add this special and unique set to their collections.
