Edgar Berebi enameled hair barrette or clip; made in France in purple with gold and very rare. Measurements: 3-1/2 inches X 2-1/2 inches. Circa 1985 and the only such piece of hair jewelry by Berebi I have ever seen. I don't use the word rare, lightly.
Berebi items were made with gold plated metal and feature intricate cut outs and beautiful enamel work. This piece is no exception. The rectangle features a bar with purple enameled bars and a deep amber colored section with a Greek Key style motif. Clear coat protects this section. There are purple enameled flowers and two dangling enameled charms.
Great swirls, curls and cut outs done in the gold plated metal.
The clip mechanism is marked: Made in France. The Berebi sticker is in place.
Very strong and has been completely cleaned. Some very minor wear to the front. The gold plated back has some tarnish.
This piece is strong and as I said before; rare.
