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.

Art Deco Style Faux Tortoiseshell Large Geometric Brooch
This is an old geometric brooch made in the Art Deco style. I'm fairly sure that it isn't an original Art Deco piece, judging by the clip and pin on the reverse. I would say it was handmade, probably during the 1950s or 60s.

The main geometric section is made of faux tortoiseshell bakelite, or maybe lucite. It ends in a point and the top section is assymetrical. A further, slightly domed circular section is attached at the top. This has been set into a hammered gold tone metal base.

It is large at just over 4 1/2 inches in length.

When I first saw it there was something really nice and unusual about it that liked, so I decided to buy it for you, despite it being difficult to describe and unusual to look at. I find it very pleasing. You will too.

Size: approx. 4 1/2 inches x 1 1/8 inches at the top

Atomic Design became irresistible with the use of atomic motifs and abstract organic forms finding their way into all aspects everyday life. Essentially, the detonation of the first atomic bomb (oddly named "Trinity") ushered in what came to be known as The Atomic Age. The Atomic Era could be described as a surreal and bizarre period of atomic optimism which initially infused an entire culture with promises of the wonders of a nuclear future.
