    Just received these juicy pierced and carved bright orange bakelite clips - I haven't bought much in 2021. These were a great "Val" price. They are 2"x1". There is a patent number on the clip - 1892918 which is associated with Anthony E. Waller mfg, Providence, Rhode Island 1931-33. Thank you Kyratango for educating me on the patent website. It doesn't tell us who carved the clips, but helps narrow down date.

    I think these are wonderful. I've seen a chunky bracelet that matches (non "Val" price), but I'll get it someday too. Hope your Spring has been rosy so far.

      Anthony E. Waller (A. E. Waller) never knew when he designed a CLIP for jewelry, he would love forever. He didn't design the jewelry at all - just the clip. He has one other patent for a part on a watch band clasp.

      He was born in Sweden in 1872.

      These look good enough to eat. That is one thing I love about BAKELITE! The wonderful colors, and orange jewelry is hard to come by! Absolutely yummy!

      Jenni -thanks for your nice comment! The roses actually were from January, and look a bit washed out and not the yummy orange they were. Love flowers, also because I don't have a yard.

      Celiene - thanks so much, yes I know the patent is only for the hardware. Who made these clips, you're right - we'll probably never know. Plus these might have been made later, but I see similar dated to 1930's.

      Eileen - yes, yummy color. I'm going to find that matching bracelet someday!
