A pair of carved and hand painted BAKELITE CLIPS (tested). Circa 1920s. Each clip has a hinged silvertone pronged clip on the back. Deep maroon color clips in a modified leaf shape. Each clip features incised floral designs hand painted in various colors such as blue, yellow, white, red, turquoise, lavender, and orange. There is some loss to the paint - in particular to the lavender flowers - but, generally the loss is minimal. There is a very tiny (!) chip on the back edge of one clip - not visible from the front - otherwise in excellent condition. The clips each measures 2 inches in length by 1 1/4 inches in width.
