    My father-in-law has a complete tote of costume jewelry, as we were looking over all of it I ran across this piece. It is marked Tiffany and Co. I would like to know what it is.

      My sisters used to use these, when you drape a sweater on your shoulders this was used to keep it in place, clip one to the button side of the sweater and the other to the button hole was just a style thing.........this will go back to the60's at least

      I believe it's called a chatelain (sp?) I can remember my aunt holding her sweater on with one of these as it was draped over her shoulders as Pop_abides said.

      Thanks so much pop_abides and Cindy. I figured it was some kind of a clip/clasp, but I thought maybe it was for a man's vest.

      oops! Chatelaine goes around the waist! Thanks for the reminder!

      Chatelaines are from the 19th century or earlier. It comes from the French word: Chateau which means castle. These ladies of the house (castle) had a chatelaine in order to can take what they need in there households (see the answers of several writers above).

      Thank you Agram.m I love hearing from all of you. I have googled this piece (sweater clasp/clip) but still can't find one like it. My Mother said she remembers school teachers and such wearing them.

      It could be a 'napkin clip'.
      One end holds the napkin and the other is put on the tie.
