This brooch is soooo gorgeous!  It is Mexican sterling with a 14K gold wash on it.  The vermeil is in excellent condition.  The brooch was made in Mexico probably for Marcel Boucher.  Although it does only have the "Mexico" mark and the 14K mark, it is pictured on page 270 of Costume Jewelry 202, and attributed to Parisina, a company  using designs by Marcel Boucher.  A world war II item.

This fur clip is by EISENBERG.  It is the Eisenberg Original Mayan mask fur clip and it was made by Ruth Kamke when she was 16 years old.

I met Ruth in October 2009 at a VFCJ national convention in Providence RI.  I showed her the fur clip, and she verified that she had made it when she was 16 years old.  Ruth is 85 years old now, so that puts the age of this clip at 69 years old.

This clip is a weighty and rare fur clip. It weighs in at 3.8 ounces.

The clip is pictured in the third edition of Dolans' Rhinestone and Colored Jewelry, and the photo in the book is a photo of this very clip.  It is also on the cover of Warman's Costume Jewelry Figurals by Kathy Flood.
