YELLOW BAKELITE CARVED DRESS CLIP

A wonderful example of bakelite carving on this small, yellow clip!  The clip is triangular and is carved round two edges (see complete description on my web site - www.gillianhorsup.com)  The colour is not quite right in the picture - it is the lovely colour of yellow amber - and is often mistaken for amber!  Even the clip on the bake is an elaborate shape!  It could, of course, be worn on a fine chain round the neck for a change!  It is from the Art Deco period.  Ref: 2339 B103/12 Price £65.  See me on Facebook - gillian horsup vintage jewellery.  Visit me at Grays Antiques in central London.
