Reference

Utility patent # 2,145,716 (for clip/brooch mechanism) issued to John Fielding in 1939 (application filed in 1937)

Fabric-like folds of gold-plated base metal with faceted square-cut ruby glass stone and diamanté embellishments form this 1940s Retro Modern brooch. Although this piece was made as a double-clip brooch, my expert jeweler has determined that the mechanism on one of the dress clips is too loose for it to function as planned. Nevertheless, as a brooch this piece is a stunning example of Retro Modern style. Minor wear to some of the gold plating does not affect the wearability of this brooch. I have priced it to reflect my purchase cost plus postage to you. You can see the utility patent here, under Fielding’s name.
