A gorgeous pair of vintage Dress Clips in silver and marcasite.
In years gone by, Dress Clips were used to attach your stole, shawl or evening coat securely, and stylishly, to the shoulders/straps of your gown. They could be worn on the lapels of your jacket or, a la Bette Davis in “The Great Lie”, to just one lapel. Today, the possiblities are endless; try attaching to your jeans’ pocket or to a belt. You can even attach them to a handbag or, if light enough, you could wear them in your hair. (This pair is quite heavy so I might not try that one with these beautifully ornate clips!).
Condition: Perfect! All marcasite stones are intact. Each Clip is marked “SILVER” on the reverse.
