Vintage Miriam Haskell set of realistic swirling agate art glass necklace and adjustable pendant clip back earrings is in excellent vintage condition.
The beautiful earrings have a classical Haskell Russian gilt flower top and measures a substantial 1 1/2 inches long while the matching 24 inch long swirling agate art glass necklace has a properly functioning signed filigree box clasp closure. The underside surface of clasp that is not seen, does display a darker aged brass patina than the filigree top (no corrosion ('greenies') are present). The necklace has very fine metal and multiple glass elements between each hand crafted swirling (no two alike, hand crafted) art glass agate sphere; the metal element spacers display wonderful different finishes each blending beautifully with the agate elements, their are small corrugated Russian gold cones which are aging nicely in the expected varying tones and the tiniest flower end caps which are all a very dark bronze color by design or with age (?) I found them quite pleasing, next are small very dark red brown, carnelian glass elements used in combination with other glass elements to separate the agate art glass pieces.
The agate elements of both the necklace and earrings measure 14mm or just under 1/2 inch in diameter. The earrings have the patented ‘oh so comfy' adjustable tension clip backs, so there is no worry with them being too tight, too loose or uncomfortable; you can adjust them easily and quickly to the perfect fit! They are signed, HASKELL, on the clip backs, MIRIAM HASKELL, on the base pads and Pat. 3176475 on the adjustable screw pad for the patent awarded to N.J. Saccoccio on Apr. 6, 1965. When examined closely these display desirable age appropriate mellowing with light wear to the finish, nothing in my opinion which detracts from their stunning appeal (some might consider small signs of vintage use undesirable), I revel in a find like this as proof that affirms the age and authenticity of the pieces, they will receive a gentle professional hand cleaning, if needed, but no attempt will be made to cover up their vintage previous 50 plus beautiful years of life.
