These two carved black Bakelite dress clips were not purchased as a pair, but they go together beautifully. They are both carved in that ethnic style that was quite popular in costume jewelry of the 1930s and 1940s. They remind me of the ethnographic collections I would see during the decade or so when I worked in a museum, almost like dance shields or masks.

Both clips have embedded silvertone hardware, which functions very well. The large clip is marked “MADE U.S.A.” The large clip measures 2 1/4" long x 7/8” wide x 5/16” thick and the small clip measure 1 3/16” long x 3/4" wide x 1/4” thick. There is a small amount of patina on the Bakelite, a tad more on the larger clip. There are also a few larger scratches in the large clip, but it's nothing to be too concerned about. This is a very striking duo of clips that will not disappoint.
