This wonderful vintage fur clip is in many books. It is marked Sterling Coro Craft and was patented in 1944. Designed by Adolf Katz. This vermeil sterling hand has long delicate fingers with her nails painted red. She has a green rhinestone bracelet and a diamond ring. From my personal collection. The clip is in great condition and the hand measures 2-1/2" x 3/4". The vermeil is a bit scratched but is still in great shape.
