Brilliant cornflower blue art glass ovals (unfoiled and open backed) pop in this '30s-'40s vintage shield style dress clip. Framed with a twisted ribbon like border, the heavy prong set glass stones are interspersed with finely ribbed domes. The stones are the stars in this clip, bedazzling in crisp, cornflower blue.
The dress clip (likely worn as a single because of it's large size) measures approximately 2 3/4 inches x 1 5/8 inches at it's widest point with a 1/4 inch profile or thickness. Blue glass ovals are about 12 millimeters x 10 millimeters. Weight of the clip is 28 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components original and intact. All glass oval stones free from chips, nicks, flea bites, cracks or breaks. All stones secure. Consistent coloring. No dents or improper bends to metal. Fantastic patina. Embossed long arm clip mechanism strong and secure with tight snap shut closure. All soldering secure. Extremely clean. No damage / no repairs. Excellent vintage.
The clip is an unsigned beauty. Circa 1930s-1940s.
