Classic vintage Miriam Haskell pair of large matching oval dress clips with facet black glass cabochons haloed by chunky English cut rhondel elements are being offered for your consideration. Both are in excellent vintage condition.
Miriam Haskell Jewelry is beautiful, classic, stylish and distinctive; one of the most recognizable designer styles though out the decades since the 1920's. These are just a few of the reasons her jewelry has retained and continues to increase in value; as well as, remained so collectible. Great designers; Robert Clark, Peter Raines, Larry Vrba and Millie Petronzio though out those years have managed to carry on the classic style first developed by Frank Hess with Ms. Haskell, while adding their own subtle and not so subtle touches and flare. If it is not obvious, we are fans!
These English cut rondels are hand wired around the large faceted ovals and all the glass is attached to a pierced metal frame and then to the pre-World War II solid steel backs. You can find a picture of these clip backs on page 75 of Cathy Gordon and Shiela Pamfiloff's book, Miriam Haskell Jewelry, with a note stating they were used during the 1930's. English cut' is the name for the chunkier cut of glass elements used in the construction of clips, it does not designate their source; only designates the chunkier cut of crystals from which their designer, Frank Hess, chose to create them. Both the clip backs are strong, function properly and the dress clips each measure a large 1 7/8 inches by 1 1/2 inches and 1/2 inch proud! Light desirable age appropriate mellowing and finish wear with the occasional tiny nick to the glass is all that is reportable with these magnificent finds* for your treasure chest; the perfect accessory for so many occasions, seasons, events and ensembles! ENJOY!! (H059)
*Tip:Dress clips / ‘fur clips’ or pin clips are very versatile; they can be worn on pockets, collars, the neckline of blouses, dresses (as they were during the 30's and 40's) and t-shirts, as well as, hang them over a velvet cord or a chain ( try a simple rhinestone chain ) to make a beautiful necklace. Use them to dress up a hand bag, belt or sash. When using a pin clip as a brooch use an inexpensive plastic pieced earring nut on one prong as a 'safety catch' or if you have one, a stick pin clutch. A fabulous piece of history and a gorgeous piece of jewelry to wear now and pass down to future generations!
