Vintage Swank Baer Wilde Plate Patent Gold Plated Collar Bar Stay
Vintage Swank B W Plate Gold Plated Collar Bar Stay is a vintage collar bar or collar stay. This particular collar bar has looped ends that go on outside and a flat part that goes under the collar. Marked "SWANK", "PAT NO 75818" and "B and W PLATE". The Design Patent 75818 "Design for a Collar Holder" application was filed on 12/8/1927 and issued to Baer and Wilde Co. on July 24, 1928.
Collar bars, stays and other vintage men's jewelry are coming back into style thanks to great shows like Madmen and Boardwalk Empire. This is would be a great gift for a fan who loves the look but hasn't yet taken the plunge to purchase the jewelry himself!
A collar bar or clip can be found in 3 different designs;
-a collar bar or barbell whose ends screw off and is designed to pass through specially made eyelets in each side of the collar
-a pin, similar to a safety pin, that pierces each side of the collar
-a bar with clips on both ends that grasp each side of of the collar
The latter two styles do not require specially made collars, but collar bars are generally not worn with buttoned-down collars and would be redundant with tabbed collars. Collar stays are not needed when using a collar bar.
Excellent condition, collar bar measures 2 1/8" wide. Based on the condition, I believe the metal to be gold plated.
This comes from a dear friend and a truly exceptional lady. While having an antique shop, she has collected various antiques and unsigned and signed designer pieces for the last 40 years and has an incredibly discerning eye for quality as well as uniqueness. The extensive nature of her collection has meant that she has not worn most pieces more than once.
It is my distinct pleasure that she has chosen to pass her extensive collection on to me. I am in the process of acquiring her complete collection and I will also be offering some for sale. Please know that with each piece comes a wonderful legacy of a very special lady that makes this jewelry all the more special.
Her collection includes some of the most desirable designers; Boucher, Carnegie, Ciner, DeLizza and Elster (aka Juliana), Eisenberg, Haskell, Hobe, Lane, Philippe for Trifari, Schreiner, Schiaiparelli, Vendome, and Weiss as well as Coro, Coventry, Kramer, Krementz, Lisner, and Trifari.
Numerous pieces are book pieces and many had matching pieces so many demi-parures are available. I acquired so much of this jewelry that I will be working on offering it in the store for years to come.
There are additional antique and vintage jewelry pieces in the various Studio Categories and other collectibles, books, art, glass, china, kitchen, home decor, and retro pieces in the store.

The doll I received isn't the one from the picture. Only one flower on her hat and missing tags. For $100 I expect what I paid for. I am incredibly dissapointed and will not shop with seller again.
Received item exactly as described. Very happy with my purchase, thanks.
What a great seller. Took extra photos for me and emailed them. Very easy to communicate with, and I got exactly what I expected-a beautiful vintage dress for my son's wedding, that was in excellent condition.
Very special gift for myself
