    Black, translucent blue moon, thin butterscotch and ribbed metal dress clip. Unmarked as nearly all bakelite is. This "laminated ribbon" was a popular 30's design. Mine is featured on page 82 "Bakelite Jewelry, the art of the carver" by Lynn Tortoriello and Deborah Lyons, (an excellent research book btw!!) Often these clips were made as a set with a matching clamper bracelet. There are a few for sale online right now that I would love to own someday. I didn't need this, but it was an amazing price. Now, I have to buy the matching bracelet. Oh boy It Never Ends :-) Thanks friends for any comments.

      When I look at gorgeous antique pieces such as this...
      Reminds me of Humfrey Bogart movies...the woman in the movie
      would be wearing this clip.
      Superb piece...I understand the "want", it's in all of us

      Thanks everyone for your nice comments:

      Jenni - I love it too and am excited to find the bracelet to match - dang, probably will be a lot of $$$.

      Share - Agree about enjoying the hunt. That's what we all love to do :-) Sorry about the cheap, strong wine.

      Judy, Karen, Kyra, Eileen, Laura - thank you all for your comments - it is a nice old clip, and fun to add to my collection...thinking of the woman who wore it before. XOXO

      Rose, what a sweet comment! Keep your eye out for the bracelet please. :-) I see an orange set on ebay for $649. I'm sure I can find a bracelet to match, how much $$$ is the question.

      Thank you friends for loving this ribbon bakelite clip :-)
