A gorgeous pair of Vintage Bakelite dress clips are presented with shiny brass embellishments.
Circa 1930’s-40’s, each one of these vintage Bakelite dress clips measures 2 inches in length and 1 inch in width at the widest portion, which is toward the bottom. They are quite thick, each one having a depth of ½ of an inch! The color is a rich and deep chocolate brown Bakelite. There are three vertical strips of Bakelite that are carved in scalloped design on the top. In between each of these Bakelite areas are strips of bright and shiny brass (what looks like imperfections in the brass are just reflections!). Each vertical Bakelite strips are pierced with rounded holes, adding to the wonderful design of each Vintage Bakelite dress clip. BE SURE TO SEE EACH PHOTO.
Bakelite dress clips are extremely versatile and be worn in a variety of directions. We have also shown how stunning dress clips look clipped over a chain, for the look of a vintage pendant. This identical pair of Vintage Bakelite dress clips will also look fabulous on a vintage hat perhaps.
Much vintage Bakelite that was designed and produced in Europe had brass and chrome embellishments. This is a fabulous example of the use of brass with vintage Bakelite. The patina on each Bakelite dress clip are bright and shin and do test positive for Bakelite. The brass embellishments are bright and shiny as well. The clips on the back of each vintage dress clip are prefect as well.
