Description

Here we have three of these gorgeous scarf clips, these were popular in the 40s, 50s to the 70s, and were meant to be lightweight, decorative, functional and affordable. Many of these items were made in West Germany. These were often made in anodised aluminium, in a gold colour (meant to replicate gold, at a time when items were produced to be beautiful but cheap) or silver, to also look like the precious metal and on a brass clip, meant to hold the scarf, which can be threaded through the ring at the back. These are often designed with a decorative motif in metal over a faux mother-of-pearl background. This backing is often made in a type of celluloid, pearlised to imitate the real thing, again when an inlay of such material would have made the item more expensive. Nowadays, celluloid used in decorative vintage items is sought after and has a quality all of its own.

At present, we have just three clips left on this particular listing. Please specify which one you want, if ordering, because we don't seem to be able to add an automatic mechanism to pick each one. Please contact us if in any doubt. These are all one-offs, but we are constantly looking for more and adding them as we can.

Our first one in the photograph is lovely and a rarer design. It is oval, with a frame in silver-coloured metal, with a scroll design, enclosing a panel of faux mother-of-pearl (celluloid). There is a beautiful motif of a dancing lady set on this panel - she has a long skirt which is studded with an embossed design meant to represent facetted marcasite stones. This gives the piece a subtle sparkle and there is glowing movement in the pearlised background. This clip is in very good condition. (It is 35mm long and approx.38mm wide).

We have added another clip, this is also on a faux mother-of-pearl background and has a beautiful dogrose in silver colour in the centre. The centre panel is in a wide and ornate silver-coloured circular frame. The frame has beautiful detail of wound ribbon and alpine flowers. This is meant to look like repousse silver work. This circular clip measures 38mm across and has the Western Germany stamp on the clip at the back. This makes it desirable and adds to its collectability.

We have a third clip, which is later in date, probably 1960-70, with quite a modern design. It is in gilded aluminium with a brass clip and this is done almost like a stitched button, in the centre, with a dark enamel or patina on it, within a geometric, ribbed circular frame. It is in good condition, there are no manufacturer's marks or country of original marks.

These are gorgeous as vintage fashion! And cheap enough to start a collection! Please watch this space, we are hoping to list more of these shortly!
