Miriam Haskell book piece tiered green and electric blue art glass earrings by her very popular designer Lawrence Vrba are stand-alone vintage earrings and they are iconic pieces of art! The pair offered here are in good to very good condition (further report to follow) The earrings are 1 3/4 inches long by 5/8 inch wide. These have the patented ‘oh so comfy' adjustable tension clip backs too, 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 their 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 gilt finish is nice and bright.
The glass appears in good condition and we say this, only because there does appear to be a 'manufacturing/creating flaw' that is very hard if not impossible to see when they are worn. It can only be seen when viewing the one earring effected from upside down (hard to do when they are being worn), but we must note it. One of the bottom bells (not the drop) has a 'rough' edge for an area of about 1/2 inch, as best we can tell it came out of it's 'mold' this way and is not visible under normal wearing conditions. (Have to assume that's why it passed its' original inspections-as it appears to us to have always been like this.)
These earrings and others in this collection using the green and blue glass in their construction may be seen on page 221 of the book by Cathy Gordon and Sheila Pamfiloff, copyright 2004; see photo no. 3 here of our listing, for one of these photos from their book used here for reference that illustrates these pieces. This marvelous book depicted is a great reference for any Haskell collector. (N3865)
