A Little Sass With A Lot Of Class


Yesterday my daughter and I attended a antique show for a short period of time... I saw many lovely items and many shoppers but in keeping with my budget only purchased a couple small treats... A fur clip... a card of lovely old buttons and some lace .... The card that the clip was on said it was a dress clip but reading up I found this clip to be a fur clip... The difference... fur clips have 2 sharp prongs attached to the spring[ mine does} and a dress clip have metal teeth to grasp the thin material of a dress... I have several different clips that I may use to clip on a old photo.... use as intented... or place in my glass cloches with other lovely objects... They were originally intended to be worn at the neckline... clipped onto a pocket or sleeve or even embellish hats.... Fur and dress clip were popular from 1910 -1940's.....

I love the photo. The model is quite happy and the fur clip is divine. You always manage to find some wonderful treasures.
