Vintage Miriam Haskell elegant pale yellow pâte de verre art glass earrings with large glass stones in a 'Russian' gilt crown settings are being offered for your consideration. They 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, 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!
These earrings are a fabulous color, I call them Easter egg pale yellow, and it is difficult to capture their color in photos due to the depth in the color in appearance of the glass; one of the reasons that makes pâte de verre glass in itself sought after for its beauty. It is my understanding to become a master at the creation of pâte de verre art glass, one must apprentice for several years under a master, as it is a difficult craft to master; it involves adding different fineness's of colored specially ground glass at just the right moment in the glass' creation process to achieve a desired effect in the glass; an over simplified explanation of the process, I am sure, but hopefully it helps your appreciation of these beautiful works of art in themselves. Each earring is signed, MIRIAM HASKELL, on the earring pad, HASKELL on the back of the earring's clip backs and with PAT. 3176457 on the tension pad; with these patented `oh so comfy' adjustable tension clip backs there is no worry with being too tight, too loose or uncomfortable; you can adjust them easily and quickly to the perfect fit! They measure 1 inch in diameter by 3/8 inch proud and the stones are mounted in a classic Miriam Haskell Russian gold gilded Fleur de Lis crown setting. They display only minor finish wear, nothing in our opinion that detracts from their stunning appeal only that that affirms their age and authenticity. A wonderful addition to your accessories wardrobe or vintage Miriam Haskell collection and the perfect accessory for so many occasions, seasons, events and ensembles for your wearing pleasure!
