This is one of the more unusual pieces I have seen from Vendome. It is a bracelet watch - the watch has a white face set in a copper colored fancy metal oblong piece that is 1 1/4 x 1 3/4". The watch is marked Vendome on the face. The bracelet consists of 6 copper colored chains that connect with a push in clasp in the back. There is also a safety chain. The bracelet watch is about 6 3/4" long - a bit hard to measure because of the safety chain...

This is one of a scarce 1942 issue of Native American fur clips - that typically would be one-half of a duette - the other clip being the male. However, there were some that were made to wear independently and one can usually see the difference if placed side by side. This one has always been a single. The clip is made of rhodium finished pot metal, and the Indian maiden has clear rhinestones on the part of her headband that shows in front, and she is very colorful and beautiful...
