Incredible French silver and blue stone incredibly fancy paper or letter clip measuring 4" by 3 1/4". The spring is strong enough to clasp a single sheet of paper. There are two tiny touch marks inside the base as shown. The blue stone looks to have a less than 1" sliver of stone sheer away from the back as pictured-this does not affect either the front or the back nor the stability. I can't quite decipher the writing. Bonheur means happiness but that's as far as I got! Dates to the late 19th Century and is a spectacular desk piece indeed.
