1900 ART NOUVEAU STERLING SILVER OPAL JEWELRY MONEY CLIP

Art Nouveau Period

Art Nouveau Period

1900 early sterling silver brown opal money clip. The art nouveau style is one of my favorite periods and designs next to art deco.   The money clip is a fashion accessory for a male wearer. There is not much history to the money clip due to currency was mostly coin during the times, there is evidence dating back during China’s Han Dynasty in 118 BCE, original lightweight bank notes were made of leather.
