Vintage Mystery: What Is This Accessory?

Answer tomorrow . . . in the meantime, here are a couple clues . . .

1) It was worn below the waist

2) In modern-day terms, its name is code for those who love women . . .

(many thanks to Nicole for sharing these photos . . . if you can't wait to find out what it is, link here.)


  1. Whatever it is, it is creepy.
    I'm assuming that it was worn as a catch on a sautoir.

  2. It's a skirt-lifter, isn't it?

  3. Apologies for being some years late but, bearing in mind the hand form of the clamp, is it not more likely to be a glove holder that is missing the hook for attachment to one's handbag rather like the pair of such owned by my wife?
