Diamanté & Sterling Flower Dress Clip
3 3/8" x 2 1/2"
1943-1948 (based on mark and use of sterling, per Schwartz & Sutton)
"STERLING" in 2 places; "N" (stone-setter's mark)
This flower dress clip has prong-set, large diamanté blossoms complimented with pavé ribbons. Substantial, yet graceful, this sterling silver pin is from the 1940s. Although it is unsigned, the high-quality design and construction, hand-set stones, and style of this piece make me believe that it was created by Fallon & Kappel. That firm designed and manufactured all of Eisenberg’s jewelry from 1943-1948, the years the company used sterling. This clip has a hinged, double-prong fastener, which works well with weighty fabrics. This bold and sparkly jewel would really stand out on the lapel or shoulder of a jacket or coat. What a glorious statement!
