Eisenberg pieces were much treasured by the ladies who managed at great expense to purchase them, and this spectacular sterling silver fur clip was clearly lovingly cared for. The signature style and use of sterling date this fur clip to the mid-1940's. The piece appears on page 440 of C. Jeanenne Bell's "...Old Jewelry" (6th Edition). It is in near-mint condition, with all rhinestones present and sparkling and virtually no wear. Every centimeter of the clip is decorated with small and larger faceted clear chaton rhinestones and large baguettes. And the complexity of the asymmetrical design is a wonder! The lower layer is a curving scroll and large lower stones on one side, and a starburst or comet tail at the other. The upper layer, which is attached with substantial rings to the lower layer, has four central swirls overlaying long "stems" that terminate in baguettes and a chaton. The upper baguettes angle back. No matter how you wear this beauty, it will sparkle! The fur clip prongs have a lovely holder or bracket to keep them in place, making this piece a natural to wear as a pendant. The piece is marked "Eisenberg Original", and "Sterling", and measures 2 ½ by 1 5/8 inches (6.6 by 4.1 cm). It is approximately 5/8 inch deep (1.5 cm). Wait until you pick up this clip! It is a weighty, beautifully designed classic guaranteed to delight!
