Pair of whimsical lipstick dress clips feature brass settings with Bakelite trim. These measure 2 1/4 inches long by 1/2 inch wide. Overall condition is fine with some darkening noted on the back of one clip. During the 1920's and 1930's jewelry became a subject of experimentation as designers such as Chanel and Schiaparelli created all sorts of large, bold, and inventive costume jewelry pieces for women looking to spice up plain or neutral items of clothing.

Dress and fur clips were worn fastened to dresses, furs, and other items of clothing, perhaps to accentuate an alluring detail such as a well-cut lapel or deep neckline. They were made out of the same materials as brooches—sterling silver, bronze, rhinestones, enamels, and plastics like Bakelite—and in similar styles, from Art Deco inspired geometric patterns to floral and figural designs.
