Miriam Haskell’s chinoiserie line of jewelry was beautiful and always popular, none of it was more coveted than this lover's set, available for your collection here. It is in very good to excellent condition. The expressions that Ms. Haskell's artisans captured in filigree brass of the lover's joy of just being in each others presence trans ends age, culture and time.
The brooch measures 2 inches in diameter with a straight and properly functioning pinback. The earrings measure 7/8 inch wide and have the early version of her comfortable adjustable patented 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! Each earring is signed, MIRIAM HASKELL, on the earring's base pad, the earring's clip backs are stamped with PAT. 2400513. The only thing we see on close inspection is a few of the pearls show a little wear on the corners to their nacre finish.
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! (L8657Set)
