Measuring 15.75 inches long by 4 inches in height, this metal, circa 1930s, brown and yellow, French advertising sign reads:

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.
