The unique and unusual.. That is what I look for and I believe this fits the bill. This wonderful dress clip is extremely 3 dimensional and very detailed. I believe this is a Lab, a Golden Retriever or perhaps a Spaniel. Definitely a male dog he has great expression. He has ruby red paste eyes which are prong set.
The clip is vermeil over silver. It is stamped on the clip as seen, PAT 1052188. The clip is in perfect working order and the spring is tight. This can be worn so many ways. It can be worn on a V neck shirt or sweater. Add a simple chain or perhaps an antique velvet ribbon and you have a fantastic necklace.
The clip measures 2" x 1 7/8" across. It has great depth and is 3/4" deep.
Condition is Very good with some age appropriate vermeil wear. No dings or dents. Circa 1940, Retro period or perhaps a bit earlier. Possibly American in Origin.
For the dog lover, a wonderful piece with tons of versatility. Questions are always welcome and encouraged.
