Description: gold and rhodium plated base metal, rhinestones
Marked: Leo Glass
Reference: Patent is reproduced below (scroll down); designer Anne Glass, dated 1940. Advertised in Vogue, 1 Oct 1940, pp 49 and 135; and Womens Wear Daily, 18 Oct 1940, p 11 (referring to the Vogue advert); click thumbnail above to view all three advertisements. Patent and ads show a pendant disc, to show which way up the thumb is. But the example in Brunialti, American Costume Jewelry - Art and Industry (2008) Vol 1 p 198, has no disc, and there is no sign there a disc was ever attached to this pin clip - suggesting the design was soon changed in production, so the thumb could be switched freely between pointing up or down.
Size: 1.7" x 1.125"
