Vintage Apple Barrette

This rare French vintage faux tortoise shell Apple Barrette is a show stopper.

A perfect gift for your favorite teacher or as a classic statement piece for your personal collection. 

Age: 1970s / 1980s

Origin:  Made in France (marked on back)

Material: Plastic - Faux Tortoise Shell 

Size: 2"x2" 

Condition: Rare Vintage 'Old New Stock'  - Meaning this hair clip is vintage, but has never been worn/used. 

Tip: Gently bend the brass hardware to allow more or less hair to be held in the clip. This will allow the barrette to be worn for hours without budging. The plastic is very lightweight so you hardly notice you're wearing anything.
