These circa 1930’s dress clips are in phenomenal condition. (I’m from the fifties and wish I were as pristine as these clips.) Dozens and dozens of pieces of Spezzati branch coral pieces are threaded to a perforated plastic backing. The threading appears to be original and is completely intact. These are possibly Haskell clips (see References, below). Pin these to either side of your neckline, or go for an asymmetrical look and put them both on one side. Really lovely.
Size: 2.25 by 1.75 inches (5.7 by 4.4 cm)
Marks: The clip mechanisms both say, “Made USA”.
References: Clip back style appears on page 75, Cathy Gordon & Sheila Pamfiloff’s “Miriam Haskell Jewelry”, where it is described as “awaiting additional corroboration” as a Haskell finding.
