1930's Carved Bone Rose Dress Clip - Small Cream Rose with Green Leaves

 Here is a delightful small dress clip dating from the 1930s.  It is made of bone which has been handcarved into an ivory coloured rose with deep detail to make each petal. With a colour wash of green and brown over  the leaves and stem this Rose is ready to be worn and enjoyed .  Measuring an inch by almost half an inch deep the rose dress clip has a white metal back clip with little prongs to hold the dress clip in place when worn.  The back clip is good and tight and this 1930s dress clip would make a very pretty piece of jewellery to be worn on a vintage frock.  A lot of hand carved antique jewelry was made of wood, bone, ivory and horn in Europe.  There was a trend for this kind of work in the Black Forest and also Switzerland and Austria where skilled carvers would create the most naturalistic flowers.  I think that this lovely little 1930s rose dress clip comes from one of these areas.

For some reason it has been quite hard to get an accurate photo to show the true colour for the bloom, it is ivory cream and the carving for rose itself is very dense and detailed, a lovely old dress clip which due to the hand carved method of manufacture is totally unique!

Dress Clips are a really versatile piece of vintage costume jewellery. If you would like to know more about other ways to wear and enjoy vintage dress clips do take a look at 'How to Wear Those Dress Clips' which is on this website in the 'Information and In the Press Section'.
