From the late Victorian era a fine quality scarf clip crafted in high carat gold testing as approximately 15ct. The scarf clip is oval in shape and has been embellished with a very restrained dark blue enamel applied strap, the centre of which displays a raised panel within pinched side again decorated with enamel. Above that a marquise shaped panel set with four pearls ranging from approx. 2.00mm to 1.00mm in diameter. Opening with a strong, hinged clip and with a gold spike to fix the scarf in position. A lovely antique item that may also be added to a chain to be worn as a pendant. A later etched detail of "1915" has been marked to the inside of the clip together with a set of three figures/letters which could read either MOT or 707.

The trend that is Shop Local (Shop Locally for the grammar purists!) has taken off with the advent of Covid-19. Shop local is a way to help maintain the vibrancy of where you live and keeping local employtment figures healthy. Of course, not every item you wish to buy is available in your local town, and that's where the internet is helpful. Online shopping with an independent business has similar benefits to the Shop Local idea.
