Enjoy this Rare find. This is a 1950’s Chanel Camellia Fur Clip made for Chanel by the famous Maison Gripoix. It is also called pate de verre since the petals are made from glass.
These clips were not signed but it is guaranteed Chanel. The Camellia is one of Coco Chanel’s signature designs. Please reference the book Costume Jewelry for Haute Couture , Florence Mulle, page 166-167.
The top of the clip is accurately signed
Depose and the back is stamped France. I tried to show in photo.
This clip is in very good condition. The clip works great. The pate de verre is in-tacked without chips or cracks. All of the rhinestones and banquettes are also in-tacked with some slight yellowing on some of the rhinestones.
