Heavily carved flower blossoms carpet the surface of this '30s-'40s vintage large art deco era cherry red Bakelite dress clip. Shield shaped clip compliments V necks as well as lapels, pockets, hats, belts / sashes -- wherever your imagination takes you. It's heavily carved surface adds the details and dimension we love in Bakelite jewelry.

The clip measures a generous 2 3/4 inches x 1 1/2 inches with a 3/8 inch profile or thickness. Weight of the clip is approximately 18 grams.

Condition is excellent vintage. All components correct and intact. No chips, cracks, nicks or breaks. Wonderful cherry red color (shade may vary on individual screens and in person) with proper patina and luster. Reverse displays original, secure long arm dress clip attached via screws. Proper tension allows snap shut closure. No metal verdigris. Clean. No damage / no repairs. Excellent vintage.

The clip tests positive for Bakelite via "409" test. It is unsigned, as expected. Circa 1930s-1940s.

See red in a whole new light. Bakelite. Something old for something new. At Cody's.
