Very good (the tips of a few beads are corroded, but this minor flaw doesn't detract from the beauty of the piece)
See #83 in "Haskell — Unsigned Clips and Pins" on Gordon website
This well-known Frank Hess World War II design features a bunch of emerald glass beads atop and hanging from silver metal leaves inset with diamanté. In typical Haskell style, the large beads have metal tips. The pierced plastic back is finished with a dress clip. This piece is unsigned, but the maker is well documented. At this stage of its life, this lovely dress clip needs to be handled with care.
This substantial (in weight and size) 1940s fur clip by Eisenberg has two layers: square-cut diamanté flowers with a pavé stem that sit atop a sterling silver leaf embellished with additional diamanté. The cut-outs on the leaf add a graceful effect. You could wear this bejeweled leaf on the shoulder or lapel of a dress, jacket or coat, and own any room you enter!
Prong-set large diamanté flowers are complemented with pavé ribbons in this substantial, yet graceful sterling silver 1940s fur clip. Although it is unsigned, the high-quality design and construction as well as the style of the piece makes me believe that it came from Eisenberg & Sons. The mechanism is a fur clip. This piece would really stand out on the lapel or shoulder of a jacket or coat. What a glorious statement!
This stunning Art Deco dress clip features a large black Bakelite diamond-shaped carved shield with newly-replaced (by the previous owner) square and round diamanté. (The plastic was molded to simulate carving.) You can wear this piece as a dress clip or as a necklace on a black rubber cord, as shown in the last photo. A 17-inch, 2mm black rubber cord with a stainless steel twist lock is included with this purchase. If you are looking for something bigger and bolder, I have the matching brooch – scroll down to see it.
This triangular-shaped pair of Art Deco dress clips is beautifully embellished with baguettes, round diamanté, and a center marquis-shaped stone, all set in rhodium-plated base metal. The cut-outs enhance the intricate design. In addition to wearing one or both clips as intended, you can also wear one as a pendant. The last photo shows it on a black rubber cord; you may prefer to use a white gold or silver chain. A 17-inch, 2mm black rubber cord with a stainless steel twist lock (which is shown in the photo) is included with this purchase. Interestingly, the front of these clips is identical to my double-clip brooch (which is shown below), but the dress clip mechanisms are different. Although these clips are marked with a utility patent number, it is unreadable. Quite a mystery!
