Diamanté & Sterling 1940s Dress Clip
3 3/8" x 2 1/2"
1943-1948 (based on use of sterling, per Brunialti)
"STERLING" in 2 places; "N" (stone-setter's mark)
Prong-set, large diamanté flowers are complemented with pavé ribbons in this substantial, yet graceful sterling silver 1940s dress 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. It has a hinged, double-prong fastener, which works well with weighty fabrics. This piece would really stand out on the lapel or shoulder of a jacket or coat. What a glorious statement!
