I bought these clips in a box of vintage jewelry at a local juried antique auction. I listed them on eBay, thinking they were not very attractive and actually rather cheap!! Imagine my surprise when the number of watchers and bidders rapidly grew beyond my wildest expectations. I still don't know what was so exciting about these clips, but I enjoyed listing and selling them.

    Do you have any idea why these clips had people so excited and interested?

    Snakes, Panthers, Insects all these figural pieces are desired by collectors. When a well made true aged piece comes around people get excited. I think yours were so popular because they remained together in true pair. Not seen often enough. These are the reasons I'm attracted to them.

    Thank you for your input--I wish I knew who manufactured them.
