Here is a ladies' barrette made of patinated copper. The metal has a matte finish. The piece is signed "Rebajes," who was a well-known jeweler and artist of mid-century. He worked on Madison Avenue in New York and then moved to Spain in later life. This piece has a simple Modernist design, oval in shape, with three leaves riveted on. The leaves move. The barette is 4 1/4" long by 1" wide and will hold a lot of hair. It fastens with two long prongs that fit into a clamp, strong and easy to manipulate. The piece is functional and timeless in design.
