Rare exquisite French floral pin clip or flower brooch and its matching earrings of lovely soft sable brown abalone from the late 1940's are being offered for your consideration. This set is in excellent vintage condition.
Although the term ' fur clip' is the commonly used name for this type of brooch, it is a misnomer. The patent for this two pronged mechanism was titled pin / clip and it has prongs strong enough to pierce fur or leather, hence the nick name. They actually work well anywhere a regular brooch* would be appropriate.
This silky satin sable brown abalone is in excellent vintage condition with beautiful subtle rainbow effects; all of the pieces are signed, Made in France, additionally the pin / clip is signed, Depose ( Patented ), on the clip mechanism. In keeping with the still scarcity of metals after WWII the backings are of gilded brass on the earrings and of gilded silver and brass for the pin / clip; both decorations are hand wired onto pierced metal backings, ala the Haskell style of the same period. All the clips function properly; there are no missing or broken abalone pieces and all are tight and secure to their forms. The brooch or pin / clip measures 2 inches by 1 5/8 inches and the earrings measure 15/16 inch in diameter ( or just under an inch ). These display only desirable age appropriate mellowing and only light wear to the finish nothing that detracts from their stunning appeal only that that affirms their age and authenticity. A timeless addition to your accessories wardrobe which will add a striking statement with lasting appeal for so many occasions, seasons, events and ensembles! (J9762)
