Today I am selling a gorgeous deeply carved cinnabar dress clip. The design is of a bird surrounded by flowers and leaves in a slightly triangular shape with a scalloped border. The outer edge of the silver toned metal that the cinnabar is set into is decorated with a flower, ball, and curled wired or spring type pattern. It is stamped 'Made in China' on the back and is most likely from the 1930s. The spring set clip is tight and in good working order. All the leaves are realistically detailed with stamped veins and scalloped edges. Overall, this is in very good vintage condition with wear and tarnish to the metal and a couple of tiny cracks to the cinnabar, which also needs a gentle cleaning. Measures a little over 1 5/8 inches long and 1 1/2 inches at its widest.

I have more vintage/antique jewelry which will be listed soon, so check back often!
