Authentic Art Deco rhinestone dress clip in heavy pot metal, with settings and stones reminiscent of Eisenberg work, is designed in a shield shape. It is comprised of clear stones in marquise, emerald, square, round brilliant, and oversized baguette cuts with a single oval stone in amethyst color. Stone cuts, combinations and arrangement are outstanding.
The dress clip, in silvery pot metal, measures about 2 3/8 inches x 2 1/4 inches. The largest emerald cut stones (actually more of a step cut) are approximately 15 millimeters x 11 millimeters. Weight of the clip is about 36 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components intact. All rhinestones intact and brilliant. The stones show minor age, consistent with their 1930s-1940s vintage. No yellow, off or dead stones. Plenty of sparkle! Embossed clip mechanism and clip reverse show some silver finish loss to the pot metal base. Clip is strong and secure.
The clip is not signed. It's bold design, showy stones and substantial settings point to a prominent maker. It dates to circa 1930s-1940s.
