Styled in gold tone metal, these pin or fur clips are simply amazing. In excellent condition, the dark blue enameled leaf design is lovely. Pale blue transparent faux moonstones are studded with clear rhinestones.
Clips are just over 2" in length and are 1 ½" wide. Both are hallmarked Trifari with a crown. Each clip weighs 28.4 grams. Circa 1938, layaway is available. Thanks.
The name "shoe button" was used by Trifari to indicate cabochons set with a rhinestone in the center, like a show button. This set was designed by Alfred Philippe. An example of these pins can be seen in the American Costume Jewelry: Art & Industry, 1935 - 1950 N-Z on page 76 by Brunialti and Brunialti.
