Art Deco McClelland Barclay necklace made between 1936 and 1941. Elegant and sophisticated this beautiful piece of jewelry is a superb design by McClelland Barclay. Barclay only made jewelry between 1936 and 1941 when he was sent back to fight in the war. Unfortunately his life was cut short when during WWII a landing he was a passenger on was destroyed by an enemy torpedo on July 18th, 1943. His highly stylized Art Deco designs really show through in this necklace. The centerpiece has three prong set ruby red emerald cut glass stones set in a rhodium plated metal base and surrounded by white rhinestones and baguettes. There are also two more sections on either side of the center design made up of one prong set emerald cut red stone and white glass jeweled accents surrounding. All of these designs are set in a fine gold tone metal foundation which has a small bit of wear as well as a small amount of verdi gris (which has been cleaned) near the clasp. Other than this the necklace is great having all the original stones intact. The necklace is 15 1/4" long and closes with a fold over clasp. An excellent collectors piece from McClelland Barclay.
