Vintage 40s Siam Sterling Niello Dress Clip Thai Nakon

Vintage 1940s Siam Sterling nielloware dress clip was made by Thai Nakon, the first company to (in 1932) begin mass-producing traditional sterling nielloware for export.

Featuring a shield shape and pronged clip mechanism, this example depicts Thepanom, the god of welcoming, seated with folded hands. He is one of the characters in the "Ramakien", the Thai national legend derived from the Hindu epic "Ramayana"; Siam nielloware is typically adorned with characters from this legend.

The clip is marked "Thai Nakon, Silver 939, Made in Siam", and is stamped with the early Thai Nakon bird-like logo (the company is still currently in business as the Thai royal jeweller).

Measuring 1 3/8" high by ¾" wide (in the center), this sterling niello clip weighs 13.8 grams and is in excellent condition.
