1920-30s carved bone dress clip. Nicely carved with no damage. Measures 2 1/4" by 1 1/4." Original clip in good condition. Dress clips began to appear post-World War I. Fashion in both clothing and jewelry changed as the world worked to recover from the “Great War” and time marched on into the 1920s, the decade of evolving and unique style. During this time, fashion began to dictate jewelry trends. The tight, corseted dresses of the Edwardian period gave way to more free-form flowing and adventurous styles, including the famous flapper dresses of the era. This new style of dress called for more ornamentation and dress clips evolved as a reaction to that and were worn not only on dresses but also on furs and accessories. Some of the big thrust for the new fashion accessory was the movies in the 1920s with beautiful women wearing them.
