Dress Clips- 2 Modernist Leaf Clip Pins Signed Meltzer 40's Vintage

Wonderful pair of modernist style leaf clips are signed by the designer, Ben Meltzer Inc New York. They were old stock, never used, and never sold... rescued from the basement storage of a 1930's-40's New York City dress shop when the building was demolished in the 1980's. This style of pin (called dress clips) was popular in the 30's and 40's, always worn in pairs, sometimes on pockets, collars and belts... often worn, I have been told, to clip a V-neckline to both bra straps, forming a 4 sided, partially curved neckline they called "a sweetheart neckline." The metal is silver in color with black patina in the crevices to highlight the design. Both have a brownish oxidation on the backs. The clips are toothed and the springs are tight. They are in very good condition. 2-1/8" x 1.25".
