Dress Clip Pair Vintage Silver Brass Feather w Turquoise Glass $95

Dress Clip Pair Vintage Silver Brass Feather w Turquoise Glass

CLICK TITLE TO BUY

 This vintage dress clip set is a very unusual large design that appears to have Native American influence. The clips have feathers, silver over brass, in a fan spray and the floral design is made of large marbled turquoise glass cabs. 

The floral design is also accented with a silver filigree medallion and the turquoise glass cabs are set in custom made silver metal bezels. This uncommon American Indian looking dress clip set is very hard to date but the style of the clip mechanism indicates it was made in the 1930-1940 period.

Unsigned and rather large in size, the clips are 2 1/4" tall x 1 7/8" wide or 57 mm x 48 mm. The round glass cabs are 12 mm. Both clips are in spectacular condition with no imperfections or flaws. The metal parts are clean and bright with no scratches or scuffs. All of the glass cabs are perfect as well with no chips, cracks, or scratches. The clip mechanisms are in perfect working order with only some light signs of wear, hardly worth noting.

One clip can also be looped onto a chain or cord as worn as a pendant.
