On the cusp of Art Moderne, this wonderful pair of late '30s - '40s vintage rhinestone shield fur clips embody the best of both worlds. With hints of Deco in the invisibly channel set square cut blue rhinestones and finely lined outer rhodium plated shell to the Moderne treatment of the volute buckle overlays with pave set clear chaton rhinestones, the transitional clips give us a look into these two powerful movements. Beautifully designed and executed, they are a fine example of crossover styles.
The clips each measure approximately 1 1/2 inches x 1 3/8 inches with a maximum 3/8 inch profile. Square cut blue rhinestones are approximately 2 millimeters. Weight of the clip pair is about 34 grams.
Condition is excellent / pristine vintage. All components intact. All rhinestones intact and uniformly clear and brilliant. There are no dark, yellow, gray, cloudy or dead stones. All sapphire blue rhinestones retain rich, saturated color and sparkle. All rhodium plate intact, front and back. All shapes retained with no dents, improper bends or collapse. No scratches or stains. Clip mechanisms strong and secure. Straight, sharp prongs and tight, snap shut closure. Extra grip prongs (at bottom) intact. Extremely clean. No damage / no repairs. Pristine vintage.
The clips are not signed. They are obvious high quality pieces from a respected firm. Technically fur clips -- wear them anywhere your imagination takes you.
The best of Deco Moderne. Get a grip. Get clipped. At Cody's.
