This wonderful vintage fur clip is signed McClelland Barclay. If you ever have the opportunity to read about McClelland Barclay you will find it very interesting. McClelland, who seems to have been quite the society man, famous for his paintings of beautiful women, but also a proud patriot, who died on July 18, 1943 while on active duty as a naval artist on a supply ship in the Pacific. Some of the most visually powerful posters created during both World War I (especially for the Red Cross) and World War II (especially for the US Navy Recruiting Service) are the work of McClelland Barclay. An artist in many mediums. This piece measures 2-1/4” x 1-1/2” and is a gold tone with pot metal and purple rhinestone accent. The clip holds high and works well. A great vintage clip in wonderful condition.
