Completely wrong design for placecard holder, I agree with handbag clasp.

Another suggestion is that they may be dress clips.  In the 40's ladies would wear plain dresses and this type of clip would be put on at the neckline.  Usually I have seen them only made in diamante or bakelite, but they looked very pretty and obviated the need to wear any other jewellery.  

PS I wans't there in the 40's, at least not as an adult, but period costume is one of my hobbies and I used to do costumes for an amateur dramtic group years ago.  Emmi

Sell them in several lots spaced a few weeks apart, say 3 or 4 per lot.

Oh Emmi, that sounds great!
you said you DID costumes - what was it actually? design, tayloring, sewing?
I hate the latter  :oops:  :evil:

Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding of worldly things moves his soul.    (Alfred Lichtwark 1852 1914)

Hi Pamela....always had an interest in period costume, especially from the 20's onwards.  Fortunately the Amdram group I was with had a penchant for doing plays from those years, Noel Coward etc.  I was responsible for obtaining (on a small budget) clothes suitable for any particular period. Some things I would buy, some I would hire, some I would design and make - I have no particular skills in sewing, but know from my past experience in the theatre as a dancer, that as long as it looks right, doesn't matter too much how badly it is made.  (tricks of the trade...stage lighting etc. you can "wing it" as we say). And they only had to hold up and stay together for the period of performances anyway. I became known as "the bag lady" as I could always be found walking the streets loaded with bags from charity shops etc.It is surpising how many period clothes can be made from relatively modern iems, with a bit of adjustment, as long as the fabric is "in period" one can work miracles.  So that's it in a nutshell...I am/was just an unskilled person with some imagination helped by research.
