This is Art Deco. Architectural ambition at it's apex. The dress clip presented, circa 1930s, embodies the energy and efficiency of the era featuring a strong shield shape design crisscrossed with channels of pave set chaton rhinestones, vertically set marquises and panel of baguettes. Signature pot metal base is finished in silver tone. Reverse reveals embossed long arm clip with spring hinge and a trio of grip prongs.
The clip measures a generous approximate 2 1/2 inches x 1 3/4 inches with a 1/4 inch profile or height. Baguette rhinestones are about 5 millimeters; largest marquise, 7 millimeters. Weight of the clip is 22 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All stones intact and amazingly clear and brilliant. No dark or dead stones. No dents or improper bends to metal components. Some silver tone wear on reverse and clip arm. Clip mechanism remains strong and secure with tight snap shut closure. Clean. No damage / no repairs. Excellent vintage.
