Absolutely stunning, large gold and silver fur clip brooch with tassels c. 1940s RARE!!
In my more than 35 years selling really special pieces of antique jewelry, I’ve never seen another like this (it’s being sold out of my private collection)
Intricate workmanship - big and bold - makes a statement - top quality construction and design
Very Retro in style - openwork, fan-like design with curved “crown” holding the long foxtail tassels that move easily
Accented with rows of sparkly rhinestones on every section of this smashing piece
Looks stunning on and is a real eye catcher!!!
The brooch is very dimensional with multiple layers and lots of movement
Fur clips can be worn on fur or any fabric; clips are perfect on collars, lapels, hats, belts, purses, and sleeves, too. This treasure can also be worn as a pendant by hanging it on a chain
Measures 3.5 inches (8.9 cm) long X 1 5/8 inch (4.1 cm) X .50 inch (1.3 cm) deep
Although this gem is unsigned, its quality and design are sure signs that it was created by an upscale designer of the time; it was probably part of a parure that only had the signature on one of its other pieces in the set.
Very nice vintage condition with only minimal, age appropriate wear
Truly magnificent piece - the rarest of the rare - will be a very special addition to any collection!
