Thistle Design Scarf Clip - 1950s (sold)

Here we have a collectable vintage scarf ring with a thistle design in a circular form. The outer area is patterned and within there is a panel of creamy pearlised Lucite which looks very like Mother of Pearl. The scarf clip has a ring back and is made of silver tone anodised aluminium which is extremely light so very suitable for the purpose. Aluminium metal was first used in jewellery manufacture in the Victorian era and it was commercially in use properly during in the 1860's. Boxes, jewellery and other tiny objects made from it were featured in the Paris Expositon Universelle for the first time in 1855. It also became a popular material for costume jewellery just after World War two and is often found used for necklace chains and bracelets in the late 1940s and early 1950s. This scarf ring has a pearlised plastic inlay which imitates mother of pearl and an elaborately decorated border with a scrolled and lined design on a coloured black background to make the pattern stand out. Measuring 1.5 inches in diameter this scarf clip is in excellent order. Wouldn't this scarf clip look nice on a vintage tartan patterned silk scarf?
