Estate Aluminum Barrette with Rhinestones, 1940's-1950's, Vine Design, Cut-Out, 4" by 2"
Vintage Aluminum Rhinestone Barrette. It is 4" by 2" with rhinestones framing the opening in the center and also inside the leaves that make the vine in the cut-out pattern. Some of the rhinestones do have graying but it works with this piece. It is slightly curved. The clasp to the barrette is a hinged slide bar that slides into a hook - much like a gate at a stable. It is not signed. I got this is an estate lot along with aluminum mantilla style hair combs that at the time of this listing are in Ebay (seller name stampshopgirl). If interested let me know. This is in good condition - it is a large barrette and will not work with fine hair - needs heavy hair to stay in place. It could also be used to accent a scarf -very pretty. They came from an estate out west. See photos. (Lot. Loc. AZ.9.20&11.1816.4) (LD 6/7/17).

Photos are magnified (but not corrected or enhanced) and will show the item larger or possibly more flawed than it actually is.
Thank you for stopping and checking us out.
Please note that most of my photos are taken at 10X magnification. This shows any blemishes much more magnified than they really are.
I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.

I will combine shipping, even if you buy items from one of my other stores. If you purchase one item and know you’ll be picking more, just email me and let me know and I will ship them at the same time and refund the shipping over the combined limit.
Given the number of different items I carry it is hard to know what combination of items can be purchased to pre-plan the shipping, so just email me and we will work it out to save you shipping charges whenever possible.
