A funky vintage dog theme tie bar c1940's.
The reverse painted glass intaglio depicts a German Shepard, it is bezel set and soldered to a wide tie bar finding that is suitable to use as a money clip.
The painting is very well done and realistic, a piece of mother of pearl creates a luminous background.
The back has an interesting aspect- there is a rolling oval bead that increases the friction and holding power of the clip.
The mounted intaglio measures 9/16" by .5", the bar measures 2.5" long by .25" at the wide end, the back of the bar is 7/8" wide.
It is marked on the back RO-LON with a patent number and Chromium which I assume is the metal.
Excellent condition, no damage and minimal wear.
A great piece for the German Shepard breeder or dog lover.
