I stopped by the thrift shop on the way home from errands on Thursday. There is a glass case by the check-out and in it sat this brooch which turned out to be a fur clip. Even though it is not spectacular signed example worthy of the collections of the CW aficionados, I bought it. When I got home, I discovered it is marked sterling. This knowledge made me feel better about plunking down a $1 for it. It measures 2 and 1/4" in diameter. Prompted by MsCrystalShip's musings, I found myself trying to image who the original owner was. Really I can't picture her, other than maybe Violet from It's A Wonderful Life. That does sound a bit harsh. Another old fur clip has found a home. It is in Fine jewelry but probably belongs in costume, no?
