    My pair of green carved bakelite clips are probably from late 30's-40's. They are a little darker than the pictures. 2.5x5 cm with a nice (unmarked) metal clip w/teeth mechanism.

    Clips could spruce up any outfit: worn on the neckline of a dress, the lapels of a suit jacket - even on hats or shoes. These are often confused w/fur clips which have longer - generally 2-prong sharp pins that handled bulky fur.

      Thank you freiheit! Aren't these amazing? I think I only paid $20 for them at a funky vintage mall in Silver City, New Mexico. 2 look really nice on each lapel or the square neckline of my pretty black dress.

      Thanks for the love: tom and mackay1.

      Lucky you. I go to second hand stores and antique markets but it is very hard to find bakelite for a reasonable price. In the summer, I go to garage and church sales and very often find better stuff there.
      I love black dresses. They look good with anything! (or should I say, anything looks good on a black dress LOL)
