Bakelite clip in apple juice color with reverse carved and painted floral detail has a very interesting double faceted shape that acts as a magnifier for the beautiful flowers and rays that are painted from the back and gives it interesting views and dimension from every angle. or
This clip is painted in pink, blue and green from the back. The flowers are painted pink and blue, respectively and there are carved rays that are painted green. The carving and painting shows through the clear apple juice color bakelite in a strikingly attractive manner.
The clip measures 1-3/4 x 1-1/8' and is 1/2" thick. The silver tone metal clip has four "teeth" to allow it to grab onto the material you will attach it to. These can easily be flattened, if desired, should you feel you do not want to use them on a particular garment, but would be great to attach it to a purse or hat of leather or suede or some other heavy material.
This is a remarkable vintage clip displaying a great amount of laborious detail. Lovers of vintage carved bakelite will appreciate the design, workmanship and wardrobe possibilities for this wonderful piece.
