Old and original...this art deco dress clip was made by Paristyle, a New York City manufacturer of jewelry and accessories. Later, they added handbags to their line.
The clip is made of pressed brass, ribbed with lines and slightly curving. There are three bezel set blue mirror glass rings along the clip. Blue mirror glass was used in the most fabulous classic art deco decor so this clip is a true survivor of the era. Measures 1 by 2 inches. The back clip still has good spring. The brass could probably be polished up if that's your preference...we like the natural aged patina.
This clip was not made as high-quality jewelry but it's definitely a great piece of art deco bauble. Excellent vintage condition.
