Vintage Miriam Haskell Art Nouveau influenced gilded brass filigree pendant drops make these earrings unforgettably gorgeous treasures, combine that with their very scarce pierced top mechanism and then add the fact that this pair still retains both of their signed clutches; INDEED then, they're a find worth a small celebration! These earrings are in excellent vintage condition; party on ready and waiting for YOU!
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, Millie Petronzio and Robert Lee Morris 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!
Yes, Miriam Haskell created pierced earrings, I do not believe they were ever plentiful in any season's offerings and with most having only been signed on the clutches, few have survived, especially ones retaining both their clutches. These beautiful examples being the exceptions are truly delightful, with all the quality construction and attention to detail her jewelry is known for; hand wired gorgeous Russian gilded filigree with distinctive Art Nouveau influencing and the fine relief filigree ( at first glance the large pendants look flat, of course, there is not a flat spot on them! ) causing shadows and highlights that could not be achieved any other way than with intricate relief design; creating earrings that are distinctively Haskell....sorry I'll stop now, true fan that I am. The earrings are a whopping 2 1/8 inches long by 1 1/2 inches wide and the top dome is 3/8 inch proud. One clutch's finish is darker than the others, both are signed Miriam Haskell and both function properly. The earrings themselves display desirable age appropriate very light mellowing with light wear to the finish, nothing in our opinion that detracts from their stunning appeal only that that affirms their age and authenticity. They will become a staple in your accessories wardrobe collection of handcrafted beauty! A timeless addition to your collection which will add a striking stand-alone statement of wearable art, the perfect accessory for so many occasions, seasons, events and ensembles from wedding day to day at the office!
