A gorgeous German Art Deco 935 standard silver leaf shaped Dress Clip set with marcasites. The Clip is marked 935 on the back and the actual clip is marked DRGM which was used in pre-1939 Germany to denote that the design of the item was officially registered. Whether the DRGM relates to the design of the spring hinged clip or the whole dress clip I do not know.
These Clips are quite versatile as they can be worn as intended - clipped to the neckline or edge of a pocket - or worn on a chain as a pendant. This particular Dress Clip has a curved clip at the back so it could be hung on a necklace strung with small beads.
The Clip measures 1 1/2 inches across and 1 1/2 inches top to bottom.
The Clip is in excellent condition with no damage and no missing marcasites. The silver has a beautiful aged patina and the spring on the clip is firm.
