WHIRLIGIGS! Miriam Haskell's vintage beautiful set of all whirligigs! The brooch and the earrings are fancy Russian gilt whirligigs and are purposefully in different shades of gilt, to tantalize the eyes and give the appearance of movement. They will surely dance across your wardrobe even if they do not actually move. The brooch is a large 3 inches in diameter and 1 inch proud. It is in corsage form with a large whirligig, a small one and a 'bud' all wired to Ms. Haskell's famous fancy gilded mesh backing to form the corsage. The brooch is signed, MIRIAM HASKELL, with-in the hard-to-find horseshoe cartouche; its clasp functions properly and the pinback is straight and sharp. The earrings are large measuring 1 5/8 inches by 1 1/4 inches and they are 1/2 inch proud. The earring clip backs are the older full signature 5/8 inch long ones both are functioning well on these beautiful earrings to complete the set. The earrings for all their size are not overly heavy and are quite comfy to wear. The set has been well cared for and all are in excellent vintage condition. These whirligigs will draw attention and many complements for you. (M2956)
