Miriam Haskell set of a realistic swirling agate art glass vintage necklace and dangle clip back earrings are all in very good to excellent vintage condition.
The earrings have a classical Haskell Russian gilt flower top and they measures a substantial 1 1/2 inches long and have a matching 24 inch long swirling agate art glass element necklace with a signed filigree box clasp and a properly functioning closure. The necklace has very fine metal and multiple glass elements between each hand crafted swirling (no two alike, hand crafted) art glass agate spheres; the metal element spacers display wonderful different finishes each blending beautifully with the agate elements, there are small corrugated nicely varying toned Russian gold cones and tiny flower end caps which are all a dark bronze color; we found them all quite pleasing used in combination with the other small dark red / brown, carnelian glass elements to separate the agate art glass elements.
The agate art glass elements of both the necklace and earrings are in very good condition and 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. The earrings appear to have been worn less than the necklace and display a brighter finish of the metal components than those of the necklace's, although both are evidently of the same age and of the same manufacture time period. We can find no corrosion on the metal components of any piece. There is varies metal toning related to age as can be seen in the photos. A lovely set for wear or gift giving.
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. The great designers that followed Frank Hess; Robert Clark, Peter Raines, Larry Vrba, Millie Petronzio and Robert Lee Morris though out the 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! ( L4007 )
