FILIGREE DRESS CLIP WITH BLACK & BROWNISH YELLOW COLOURED GLASS STONES


This filigree dress clip is unusual. At first glance I thought the black, fan shaped black glass pieces were lots of separate stones - but looking through a magnifier I realise that there are just 2 black glass fan shaped pieces. The cream enamel is hard enamelling not painted. It is a beautifully made clip! The clip fitting at the back is made so that you could put it on a gilt chain of a reasonable thickness if you wanted to wear it round the neck. Love it!  Ref: 2390 B94/52 Price £75 - www.gillianhorsup.com - I always have a selection of dress clips in my shop at Grays Antiques in central London - details on my web site.
