Miriam Haskell large vintage floral brooch in shades of purple glass and rhinestones with her signed horseshoe shaped cartouche; this beautiful brooch is in excellent condition.
This beauty begins and ends with large fire opals of glass and is none the less dramatic for being so. Then there are the large very showy flowers, created from layers and layers of gilded brass petals, leaves and multiple shades and sizes of purple, mauve and lavender rhinestones. Just when you think you've seen and found all the flowers, the designer will find a way to sneak one more in where you don't expect it to find it. The brooch is large; measuring 3 inches long, 1 1/2 inches wide by 5/8 an inch proud. Be prepared for lots of complements when you wear this one!
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! (L8113)
