Vintage Art Deco flower pin / clip brooch with seven flower petals of large red oval rhinestones accented with pave set white rhinestone leaves. This beautiful dress clip is a large 3 inches by 2 1/4 inches and is in excellent vintage condition..
The brooch / clip is signed on its clip mechanism, ( P )at.1801128, (the final 8 is only partially struck), this patent was awarded to A.E. Waller on April 14, 1931. The long slender clip mechanism functions properly. The flower has no missing or dead stones. This displays desirable light age appropriate mellowing with light wear to the finish, nothing in my opinion which detracts from its stunning appeal (some might consider small signs of vintage use undesirable), I revel in a find like this as proof that affirms the age and authenticity of the piece, it will receive a gentle professional hand cleaning, if needed, but no attempt will be made to cover up their vintage previous 80 plus beautiful years of life. Your questions about a specific item for sale in my shop are always welcome. The larger red rhinestone ovals measure 18 by 13 mm. This stunning piece will be a fabulous addition to any collection for wear or display with your finest. Try it over a chain to form a fabulous pendant / necklace!
Dress clips are very versatile; they can be worn on pockets, collars, the neckline of blouses, dresses (as they were during the 30's and 40's) and t-shirts, as well as, hang them over a velvet cord or a chain ( try a simple rhinestone chain ) to make a beautiful necklace. Use them to dress up a hand bag, belt or sash scarf. See photo 7 in the series; the black and white ones show ones worn in the 30's and 40's and the in living color photos show them worn today. A fabulous piece of history and a gorgeous piece of jewelry to wear now and to pass down to future generations! (K1500)
