Art Deco Revival Tie Tack - Mother of Pearl Effect

The Art Deco style has a timeless appeal and this Retro Art Deco Style Tie Pin is great!  Dating from the 1960 - 1970s art deco revival period can be worn in the horizontal way I have photographed it or in portrait style ( I have rotated one of my photos to give you an idea of how this might appear) which actually gives you two slightly different looks.  In Excellent conditon this vintage tiepin is offered in its original black velveteen lined box.  This vintage tie tack has a mother-of-pearl effect Lucite dome inlaid with two parallel silver bars. The tie pin has  natural creamy pearl colours to the edges of the dome and a subtle apricot coloured stripe effect going from top to bottom down the middle of the dome.  This lucite mother of pearl effect jewel is a rectangle with a dome and it has eight gold tone claws surrounding it.  This vintage tie pin is finished with gold plated mount and a 'twist and pull' pin retainer with a chain and bar device.  The tie pin measures approximately 1 cm by three quarters of a cm.

Ties first became part of a fashionable gent’s attire in the 19th Century.  Naturally since then there have been many items of jewellery introduced as tie-control devices.  Some of the earlier ones were patented and some innovative ideas were introduced in the form of a pin, tack, clip, clasp, bar, slide and chain.  All of these stick pins, tie pins, tie chains, tie tacks, tie clasps, tie bars, tie slides and tie clips were designed to do one simple job: to prevent a tie from flapping, falling or moving about and to ensure a neat appearance for the wearer. Tie accessories are made from all kinds of materials, predominantly metals so you find them in the precious Gold, Platinum and Silver as well as in base metal.  Tie accessories are usually decorative from conservative styles to the weird, wacky and wonderful.  Tie accessories follow the trends of their era so are good examples of a particular style or fashion – for example – Art Deco or the 1960s.  They are often set with a precious jewel such as a pearl, diamond, sapphire or ruby; a lesser stone or often the very smart mother of pearl and onyx are favourite inlays.  Tie accessories, in the same was as ties themselves,  can be used to show affiliation to a particular regiment or club or activity or sport, can be commemorative tokens and souvenirs.  Tie pins and clips can be made of all kinds of materials for their decorative element such as leather, wood, jet, and early plastics like bakelite, lucite and celluloid.  There is generally a metal element to them in all cases so that they are easy and practical to fasten.
