Reference

Brunialti, p.41

This brooch by McClelland Barclay features a small silver-tone diamanté-encrusted maple leaf laid on top of a larger gold-tone one. The pin closes with a roll-over safety clasp. With two colors of metal, this graceful piece can be worn with anything. The bright areas on the bottom leaf are camera reflections. The two small areas of darkening are not noticeable when worn. According to Brunialti, Gioia Mori’s biography of Tamara de Lempicka includes a picture of the well-known Art Deco portraitist wearing a brooch like this one. Need a better endorsement?
