This Goody barrette has an elegant faux Tortoise Shell design circa 1970's. Measuring 3 3/4" in length and just a bit over 1/2" wide, it will hold your hair on vintage style. There is some wear on the barrette side, which does not effect how it looks or works. Great find and great price. This piece will arrive nestled within a jewelry box for safe travel and safe keeping.
