Lingerie or Lace Clips: This set is really quite lovely. They are made of a base metal. The oval clip has a stamped, open work top. There appears to be some kind of material stuffed into the space behind it. It appears to be deliberate, not just an accumulation of debris. It appears to be fiberous. The two rectangle clips have a stamped design with an oval, blank plaque in the middle. You could engrave an initial here if you so desired. They do show some wear to the finish. All the clip mechanisims are in good working order. The chains that attatch them are aprox. 6 1/4" long.The clips are stamped- pat. pending. Oval clip aprox. 3/4"X1/2"/Rectangle Clip aprox. 5/8"X1/4". The shipping fees quoted are for first class/No insurance in USA only.
