This is one of those pretty sweater clips that girls wore with their twin sweaters in the 1950s. One sweater was a pull over, and the other one was a cardigan which was often worn over the shoulders and held in place by a sweater clip. Most were decorative, as this one is. The pearlized heart shaped ends are decorated with flowers, the chain is imitation pearls and the clips are gold colored. It is in very good condition and has no marks.

This vintage coat is incredibly beautiful and has no real flaws, worn areas, or tears. It may have had repairs in the past, but nothing is evident of that. The only thing that needs to be fixed is a missing eye for one of the hooks on the front. It was made in Germany at a furrier that had been in business since 1883. The label says, "Die Weltmarke, Pelzveredelung Seit 1883" and "Thorerprocess". It is really gorgeous and looks new because there is nothing wrong or flawed with it...

This is a really nice gold toned metal hair piece. The butterfly is enameled, I think, and it is very well done. The butterfly even has two gold toned metal antennae. It measures 2" x 1 1/2" and it is in good condition. The front is nice and shiny, but there is a bit of corrosion on the back where the metal pieces are fastened together. There are no marks.

This is a very unusual piece from the Art Deco Period when everyone used a compact. This one is made to look like a decorated envelope in black enameling and gold toned metal. The seal is a mother of pearl half button. The compact is not large - it is 2 3/4" x 1 1/2". The inside is in excellent condition - still has the little puff, but no powder and the silvering on the mirror has a few small blotches such as one would expect with something this old. It has no marks of origin.

This is really a rare and special piece. It is very heavy - so I think it is probably solid brass. It is shaped like a heart and the top is set with large clear bezel set rhinestones in a variety of shapes and sizes. It opens easily and still has the original powder puff with the Yves St. Laurent logo as well as the caked powder. The mirror is round in the heart shaped top. It is stamped on the back, as I have shown you, and there is also a sticker which is partly in French so I cannot read it, ...
