Antique English Brass Merry Phipson & Parker Paper Clip Arms With Lion & Unicorn
Date: Uncertain but most likely sometime mis to late 1800s.
Size: The piece measures ~5" long by ~2" wide at the base. The front or top of the clip itself is ~4 3/8" long and ~1 5/8" at its widest, while the clip is ~1 1/2" at its highest. The piece weighs ~4 ounces.
Maker: Merry Phipson & Parker.
Marks: Marked on the top of the clip "MERRY PHIPSON & PARKERs PAPER CLIP" see photos for details.
Condition: The paper clip is in excellent condition with no breaks, or repairs. It is a bit soiled, with a few stain spots, and a few scratches as well as some minor dings. It would probably benefit from a good cleaning to bring it back to its original beauty, but we leave that to the discretion of the new owner. It works well and all the details are well preserved. The spring is strong and closes tightly. This is a nice piece, which would display very well in your collection of paper clips or your desktop item collection. Please view photos for additional condition information and to appreciate the beauty of this great piece.
