Pearly 1940s Butterfly Barrette Hair Ornament plus Kirby Grips - On Card (SOLD)

A beautiful butterfly barrette hair ornament complete with a set of useful kirby grips unused and on the original presentation card.  The small butterfly hair ornament is made from an early plastic but has the look of real mother-of-pearl.  It has a curved shaped and a lock of hair can be fastened into it and held in place by a hairpin that has the appearance of a tiny knitting needle!  The butterfly clip  with pin measures 4.5 cms by 6cms and is very detailed and pretty.  The sales card has a photo of a smiling lady, the brand name - 'Tip Toes' a description of the product which reads - "Hair Grips for long or short hair".  It also declares that this vintage hair slide set was "Made in England".  The lady has a 1930s to 1940s style so I would think that this pretty hair accessory set dates from that late 1930s to the early 1940s period.  The vintage butterfly clip, made of celluloid, and the card are in excellent vintage condition.  Keep as part of a collection of vintage vanity items or wear as a pretty vintage 1940s hair ornament.
