VINTAGE SILVERTONE CHAIN DOUBLE FASTENERS CLIPS

--- OTHER CLIPS ---




ANTIQUE HFB POCKET WATCH CHAIN
Size: 13" length end to end, 2mm width links
Signed 'HFB' (H.F. Burrows & Co.) on the swivel clasp. Excellent condition with normal aging, I believe this is gold-filled, I do not see much wear, except for normal scuffs. Fancy links in a greenish-yellow colour. This is probably late 1800s to Edwardian period (early 1900s).

VINTAGE AQUA & CLEAR RHINESTONE EXPANDABLE HAIR CLIP
Size: abt 55mm when closed
Good condition, aging on the rhinestones turning cloudy, mostly on the clear rhinestones. This is a hairclip which expands and contracts by means of riveted hinges.
