Vintage 40s fur clip, featuring blue moonglow lucite "grapes" dangling from a "stem" pavé-set with clear rhinestones, is an early, unsigned design of Gene Verecchio's for Coro.
Design patent number 125,169 for this piece (which refers to it as a "pin clip") dates to February 11, 1941. Though there enamel-accented versions (both signed and unsigned) of this design, Verecchio's drawing on the patent document shows it exactly as it is here, a looping, bow-like accent set exclusively with rhinestones.
Measuring 2 ¾" by 1 ¾", this lovely and collectible design is in very good condition, with the clip mechanism secure and all stones present though they have a touch of age-related cloudiness to them.
