A pair of unusual vintage plastic dress clips that are stamped Made in Japan. They are made of faux ivory (similar to french ivory or pyralin) with tiny parallel lines and have carved mother-of-pearl flowers with abalone leaves as decoration. There is also a tiny green cabochon stone? inset next to the incised stem lines that are highlighted with black. Each clip measures about 1.75" in length by 1.25" wide at the top. They feel heavy for their size (not celluloid).
Condition: These are in Very Good condition with
some light surface wear and soil from normal use consistent with age. The clips still have some snap (note that one of the clips was attached slightly crooked). It is possible that some of the surface nicks occurred during the manufacturing process.
