Here for your consideration is this wonderful patriotic pin, a multi-colored red white, and blue French cockade (bow) fur clip. This beautiful pin was made in 1940 by the Silson Company sponsored by the American Friends of France. These fur clips were made and sold in part to raise funds for the French freedom fighters during World War II. The pin depicts a bow embossed with the words “Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite" the French revolutionary motto “Liberty, Equality, Brotherhood” a wonderful spirit of patriotism. This clip is a nice size measuring 2 ¼ inches by 1 ½ inch, it has a double-pronged hinged clip that functions well. The condition is very nice with slight enamel wear consistent with its age, storage, and use as you can view in the pictures. It is hallmarked on the reverse Silson, this clip was designed and patented in 1940 by Victor Silson. You can view a similar copy of this Silson clip in Christie Romero’s book, Warman’s Jewelry, third edition, on page 196. This would make a wonderful addition to any Jewelry Collector's collection or a wonderful gift for someone special. Here is your opportunity to own this piece of jewelry history.
