Value of Mcclelland Barclay metal sculpture : LUSENET : Art Deco Society of Washington : One Thread

I am trying to decide whether to purchase a Mcclelland Barclay statue. It is signed and dated 1931. The staue depicts a nude on a turtle. It is a pot metal scuplture which was painted by the artist. What would the ballpark value be of a Mcclelland Barclay statue such as this one?It is approximately 12 inches by 8 inches. I have looked up information on Barclay who also made jewelry. I would value your opinion. Thank You............Carol Sym

My grandfater worked for Mcclelland Barclay and possibly designed the statue that you describe and yes, I agree with the price presented prior. Could you send me a photo as I am in the process of doing a book on Mcclelland Barclay metal sculpture. Thank you,
