These rare antique Art Nouveau pewter barrettes are so very charming. I
was lucky to find them as a collection of new old stock, so they are
still completely original and have never been worn or used. They are
not modern stampings, but sturdy cast designs dating back to circa
1900. The design features a lovely woman with long hair flowing down
and around her face, centered between two striated openwork side panels
that are tipped with fleur de lys. They can have a multitude of uses
beyond barrettes too depending on how creative you want to get ~ I've
used them as cravat pins by just clipping them over a tie or cravat at
the top of the neck, or you can clip them over a strap on a top or
dress, slid over a hat band, etc... You could also get creative and
re-purpose them into other jewelry!
Each barrette measures approx. 2 1/4" long and open in the back as well
as having a tiny "comb" portion on the inside of the barrette to help
keep it securely in place.
