1930s Bakelite Carved Figural Strawberries Dress Clip/Brooch1930s Bakelite Carved Figural Strawberries Dress Clip/Brooch1930s Bakelite Carved Figural Strawberries Dress Clip/Brooch1930s Bakelite Carved Figural Strawberries Dress Clip/Brooch

The dress clip format of brooch was popular in the art deco and art moderne eras. Attached to a garment's EDGE by a spring loaded tooth clad clip, the form was popular in all modes of jewelry design both fine and costume. This dress clip is worn on the edge of a collar, a lapel, the top of a buttoned up shirt, on a hat, or holding a scarf to a garment. Creative intelligent dressers now just how to use these period pieces. This one is all hand carved and depicts leaves and strawberries, nestled naturalistically together. The rich butterscotch, almost orange color is vibrant yet earthy and wholly wearable. The clip is approximately 2.75" long and 1.5": wide. Its thick and chunky, like big thick cookie, and its substantial quality and hand carved detail make it a sought after figural carved bakelite clip-pin-brooch. To wear in the center of a garment, rather than an edge, simply pin a safety pin no wider than the widest dimension of the clip into one's garment. Then open the spring clip, and slide it into the fastened safety pin and close, and this somewhat archaic dress clip format is instantly transformed into a standard brooch-pin. Creative thought at work for the retro fashionista on the move! All guaranteed original and authentic 1930s American bakelite.
