This is a delightful antique Victorian desk clip in the form of a lady's hand made of pressed brass. This one is wearing a ring on the forefinger and an attractive lacy cuff. These items were made as an accessory for a lady's desk to hold letters, bills or calling cards. They can be used for their original purpose or they can be hung on the wall as a decorative item.
It measures 5 1/4 inches by 2 1/2 inches and it is in very good condition. The spring clip mechanism works properly and it has no damage other than surface wear and patina.
