    Hi everyone

    These are just the cutest little clips to show you.

    They have that odd fitting where the wings when squeezed together open and close the prongs on the back so they can be attached to .......and this is the hard part!!
    I have seen these listed as veil pins/brooches, hat ornaments etc so I guess they could be worn on anything that the prongs would go through!
    These are only costume jewellery and both have some damage, but I think they are just adorable.
    (Kyratango posted a much nicer one not so long ago)

    I found a patent reference for an ornament by Ralph De Rosa from 1935 that is a similar fitting on a butterfly......I will post the link.

      Love them both but the black duck gets my vote. Butterflies appear lots in my brooch collection, but no black ducks! GO the duck!!!

      Thanks Bijou for the lovely comment! They are both nice but I have to admit the black duck makes me laugh!!
    8. kyratango kyratango, 4 years ago
      Judy, they are so cute!
      The duck makes me smile too, very whimsical :-)
      They are at the right place on the hat, complementing each other!

      Thanks Pascale, appreciate your lovely comment!!
      They are not really easy to manipulate either as you said in the post of your bug...... cute but very awkward!!

      Hi Judy, would it be possible to have a close up of the duck. Are the colours copper and gold, also is there silver.

      Her first use was for the hair, or on hat netting!

      That's wonderful, thanks Celiene!!! I had found the patent number but didn't realize I could take it further and get all that information as well!!!
      Thanks again!!
