1930s Oriental Dress Clip set with Faux carved Jade and Faux Turquoise Jewels

A fabulous Art Deco Dress Clip in the Oriental style is on offer here.  Dating to around the 1930s this is a really nice example of pressed glass jewellery.  The inset faux jade panel is finely detailed with carved flowers and a fruit. The green panel with its fruit and blooms is actually a Peach with Peach blossom. Both of these are symbolic in Chinese culture; the Peach as the symbol for good health, longevity and immortality. Peach Blossom represents the springtime, a season which the Chinese consider best for weddings. So you see the blossom is symbolic of love, romance and marriage.The green jade effect panel is speckled with some small mutton fat colours included, it is a really good imitation of fine jade. The metal has an antiqued brass colour to it and has a pressed decoration of concentric circles. There are also four flowers which act as cup settings for four sweet small blue jewels which are imitation turquoise. Although in the Chinese style it is likely that this vintage dress clip originated in Czechoslovakia as this was a specialist area making wonderful pressed metal settings and glass beads and other glass jewellery and ornaments such as buttons and buckles.  This vintage dress clip is in very good condition with just the patina and surface wear that you would expect on an item of this age.   It fastens to your frock or jacket by the use of a clawed metal clip.  The clip is good and tight and functions perfectly, closing with a snap. In modern life we often wear shoulder bags, we wear cocktail jewellery on our day outfits and it is possible to dislodge dress clips. I always tack or stitch mine  to a garment for added security. This clip back has a series of little holes allowing you to do just this if you wish to. Back in the day your ladies maid would have undertaken this task and it was also common to remove buttons and buckles for laundry purposes. Measurements for this collectable vintage oriental dress clip are 6 cms by 4 cms so it is quite a decent size.

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'.
