A pair of love birds carved from bakelite the color of rich, dark chocolate. These pretty lovebirds' glittery eyes are rhinestones.  Each bird is a dress clip, made to perch on you and wink at your friends.  Considering the quality, design and craftsmanship of the pair, we think these originated in France. Although Americans have always had quality bakelite, they did not typically have the fanciful designs, as did the French.

In exceedingly good condition. 2 1/4"L x 5/8"W and real eye-catchers!
