Here for your consideration is this World War II-era "Drunk Tiger" vinaigrette fur clip/brooch designed by Samuel Rubin for the Silson Company in 1940. This fur clip is made of heavily gold-plated base metal with black enamel paint tiger stripes accented with sparkly pave set rhinestones. The fur clip is hallmarked Silson on the reverse. This fur clip depicts a tiger that is celebrating by lifting his goblet for a toast. The goblet is actually a perfumer designed as a goblet. The top screws off the goblet to hold a tiny bit of perfume. You can put your favorite perfume into the cotton within the goblet. The cover of the goblet is a brass filigree so that the perfume may be enjoyed. This whimsical style fur clip enabled the owner to wear their favorite attention-getting clip. It is a large size that measures approximately 2 ½ inches by 2 ¾ inches. This collectible fur clip appears slightly worn as you would expect in a pin of this age. The pin back functions as it should. The overall condition of the pin is very nice with slight wear consistent with its age, use, and storage as you can view in the pictures. Silson brooches and pins are highly collectible and desirable. Silson Company made many commemorative pins during the war years frequently to raise money for resistance freedom fighters in Europe. Silson jewelry is stylish and timeless for those who enjoy the classic look of the mid-twentieth century. Here is your opportunity to make this piece of history your own. This would make a wonderful addition to any Jewelry Collector's collection or a wonderful gift for someone special.
