McClelland Barclay was an illustrator and a designer and his sense of style and design was flawless, as is evidenced in all his jewelry. His items are rare because he only produced jewelry between 1935-1943 and was killed in WWII.
This desirable pin is full of jazzy faux diamonds and brilliant emerald rhinestones that sparkle and glitter like there is no tomorrow. And that’s just what it was about during the flamboyant Deco period… glitzy and flashy.
But this broach’s artful design brings a degree of sophistication not found in many Deco pieces and it’s to be treasured for years to come. The construction is superb and it is quite substantial. It is signed McClelland Barclay on the back.
The broach measures 2 1/2” across and 1 ¼” deep. It is in excellent vintage condition with some slight plating wear and guaranteed vintage.
