Condition Report:

Very Good - Some darkening at the edges of some of the mirrored panels. This is consistent with age, but does not detract from the appeal of this set.

The Details...

This silver tone metal dress clip and clip on earrings set features faceted blue mirror glass panels. They are molded into star shapes and claw set. The reverse of the clip and earrings are stamped '187'. The clip is also stamped 'Tomeco Slovaquie', which means it was manufactured in Czechoslovakia. The dress clip measures 4.5cm x 4.5cm. Each earring measures 2cm x 2cm. 

A Short History...

Glass has been a prevelant feature of costume pieces since the invention of jewellery. An easily accessible material that can be formed into any shape and dyed any colour. Glass was heavily used in 1920s and 1930s pieces, such as this set, because it could be dyed in a vast array of colours to meet the need for affordable jewellery after the Great War and the Depression. This set features highly sought after mirror glass, which was commonly produced in Czechoslovakia during the Art Deco era and molded in different shapes with a silvered backing.  

Wear it With...

This set is perfect for evening wear -  it would look beautiful with a little black dress. It would add a pop of colour to casual looks too - pair with a jewelcoloured silk shirt.
