|Miriam Haskell Vintage Brooch with Three Oval Faux Pearls |
|A somewhat unusual filigree gilt bar pin brooch from Miriam Haskell. Made during the 1950s the brooch is quite large and set with three oval faux pearls. The pearls are held by fancy looped prongs.and there are tiny bead details accenting the brooch. |
The brooch fastens with a pin and safety catch which is in perfect working order, and the Miriam Haskell signature is on the reverse, at the centre.
There is some very slight surface wear to one of the smaller pearls which takes the form of a small, (approx.1mm) patch that has worn away. It is barely noticeable because the colour underneath the surface is white also. In the first photo here, it is the pearl nearest to you.
A highly sought after collectable Haskell peice to add to your vintage jewellery collection.
Size: 3 1/8" x 1/2"
Price: 63.00 euro

Miriam Haskell established her Miriam Haskell Company in New York City in 1926. From the get-go, her handcrafted floral-themed costume jewellery was a hit with the stylish women of Manhattan, who adored her intricate necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and pins. Haskell loved gilt findings and filigree, faux pearls, Austrian crystal beads, blown glass beads from the island of Murano, and, above all, rose montees.
