Sweetpea Cottage is providing you with the opportunity to obtain a full sales, or display, card of vintage Galalith, or casein, dress clips that were probably made in England in about 1930. Galalith, literally translates as "milk stone", is the trade name for plastics that were made by treating milk casein with formaldehyde. We have obtained a complete set of dress clips that are still displayed on their original store display card. The clips are in a variety of shapes and styles, all inset with rhinestones. The clips average about 2 1/4 inches long. There are a total of 12 clips on the card. The clips are in good condition all though four of them have some rhinestones missing and there is some minor spotting that comes from the normal aging process. (We can provide you with the name of an individual who can replace the rhinestones if you wish.) The flower shaped card stands about 9 1/4 inches tall, is about 8 ½ inches wide, and is covered with velour. It is in very good condition with some minor bending to the cardboard backing and has very mild soiling that is consistent with age. You might wish to remove the dress clips and use them, but in our opinion the whole card would be terrific if it was carefully framed in a shadow box frame. This would provide a great decorative statement for your boudoir.
