This is a very large circa 1940s vintage rhinestone leaf shaped dress clip. The base of the clip is a flat gold tone brass leaf shape textured with leafy veins. This is topped by an oval dome set with large glittering clear faceted rhinestones, all 8 mm stones except for 4 smaller 3 mm stones. The back has a sturdy functional spring clip. There are no markings.
This clip measures 3" x 2.75" x .5".
Condition is good. Under magnification I can see some old glue residue around the stones, so some stones may have been replaced.
Large glitzy dress clips like this are fun to wear on jeans jackets or winter coats. They dress up even the most humble garment, and are fun.
