A vintage glass stone featuring a hand-gilded clarinet is at the centre of this small clip. This whimsical stone was made in West Germany around the 1950s, and sourced from old warehouse stock. It is designed to be worn as a hair clip but could also be worn on the neckline of a dress or jacket.
It has been glued to a small filigree clip base in an antique bronze colour. The clip measures 3.5 cm in length and is 2.5 cm in diameter.
This clip has been lovingly made with vintage material which holds some evidence of their former life in a deepened patina and minor wear. I think that is what gives them so much charm.
