Sterling and onyx Chicago Kalo Shop earrings in amazing condition. Timeless, classic, superb quality and design, and highly collectible. The earrings measure 7/8" x 5/8". Both earrings are marked Sterling and Kalo.

The Kalo Shop, so well known, respected, and influential in the Arts & Crafts movement, was founded in 1900 in Chicago by 32-year old Clara P. Barck. In many respects the Kalo Shop was the single most important American handwrought silversmith. Talented individuals such as Frank Gardner Hale and Edward Oakes were also key Arts & Crafts metalcrafters, and two other large firms -- Arthur Stone and George Jensen -- were in the very top tier of makers, but the Kalo Shop produced the widest range of classic handmade holloware, jewelry, and flatware for nearly 70 years, and was a critical influence in the Arts & Crafts movement.

The Kalo Shop trained or worked with noted Chicago metalsmiths such as Julius Randahl, Grant Wood, Esther Meacham, Matthias Hanck, Falick Novick, Heinrich Eicher, and Emery Todd. In the early years most of the output was copper, but quickly changed to silver. It also produced fine gold jewelry. Kalo objects have a timeless, elegant style that seems modern today even though many pieces were made nearly a century ago.
