An attractive vintage dress clip made of gilt metal with a great art nouveau / art deco design. I cannot find any marks on it whatsoever regarding metal content or maker. A magnet will not stick to it. It is unusually large, measuring nearly 3" wide x 2" and would look beautiful worn on a square neckline. An unusual piece for the discriminating collector who is not afraid to be different - you won’t find this on the home shopping network.
Condition: The gilt surface is worn in areas, especially on the rear surface of the clip (revealing a silver-colored metal). There is some darkening to these areas and some tiny areas of corrosion. The clip still has strong “spring”.
