This is such a GREAT pair of dress clips! The glass stones are just amazing! Each clip measures 1 3/4" by 1 1/4" and the settings are stamped brass. They are very detailed with a leaf border and tiny flowers throughout. The stones are faceted glass- openbacked and unfoiled. They are deeply set into the sawtoothed cups- look like the cups were formed around them, collet or bezel-set? The glass is so brilliant- it must have lead content- the colors are jeweltones-green,sapphire, amethyst,ruby, and topaz. Each clip has the same center 8mm green glass- but the two clips differ in the outer row of 5mm colored glass pieces. They do all look original- just not matched when made. The 2 flowers flanking the center green stone have marcasites as their middles. The clips are tight and grab well. Back(click here) Both pieces are in excellent condition!
WOW! This 3-dimensional brooch measures 3 3/4" by 3", with waving plumes that stand out 1/2" from their centers. It is made of a goldtone plated stamped metal. There are 3 glass cabochons- the largest is 3/4" and looks like a green catseye. The next is a bit over 1/2" and looks like carnelian. The last is 1/2" and looks like lapis- it has mottling and gold glittery veins. I believe all of them to be faux. Rolling safety clasp, in Excellent Condition!
This early piece measures 2 3/8" by 1 3/4" and has a wonderful spray of flowers incorporated into the design.

In very good condition, with few signs of wear!
