An exciting find, quite rare, this exceptional Paper Clip features a Dog or Dragon {the two dealers in Europe I bought this from could not agree!} with fantastic patina and decorative presence. The clip moves up and down with the shell end at the top. The bronzed figural is exquisite, cast beautifully. The color of the dog {or dragon} is bronze, as is the back end of the clip with the shell. The front is silvered. If you have been looking for an amazing holiday gift {perhaps for you?!} this is it.

The dog can be lifted allowing you to put a note or letter underneath, then closes down to the silvered heavy base to hold the paper in place. In wonderful condition, this is an extremely collectable piece and a rare to find example of a paper holder. Has a dark patina, I have not polished this as I know some of you prefer original patina. Display with your collection of 18th and 19th century paper weights, on your French desk, this truly is a work of art. The perfect gift for the gentleman in your life. Measures 5-1/2" x 2-1/2" x 1-1/2"h.
