STUNNING - circa 1950 fabulous "fur clip" or pin, of gold tone metal, and light blue GLASS center with six blue glass dangles. Marked "FRANCE". I can't tell you how stunning this piece is in person and the craftsmanship that went into it! Tres avant garde! Very modernistic! You can clearly see that this is a hand made piece by the way the dangles are wired into the pin itself. Has a 2-prong pin back on a hinge -- originally for attaching to a fur coat, but today I would wear it as a brooch. Pin back works great -- I would simply add a little plastic earring back (the kind that comes with pierced earrings nowdays) to each prong and it will secure nicely.
Pin measures 3" long by 1 1/2" wide and is in very good condition.
I will be listing some beautiful and special vintage jewelry pieces for a friend in the coming weeks. Her mother, who passed away some 20 years ago, had an antique jewelry store in Scottsdale, AZ. The family had been holding on to some of her special jewelry pieces, but now feels it is time to let them find a new home.
