If this old bracelet doesn't bring a smile to your face, your name must be 'Grumpy'. One look at this great glass beaded bracelet and you instantly see teeth grinning at you. At least, that's what we see.
The beads are wired on five separate strands. Orange glass beads alternate with white milk glass beads shaped like Tic-Tacs that look like teeth. In between are twisted strands of coral-colored glass seed beads. The ends have dangle beads of orange and white.
This unique bracelet measures 1 1/8 inches wide. It will fit an average woman's wrist...6 to 7 inches, very comfortably. There's a tiny bit of age tarnish to the small amount of visible metal. We're pretty sure this is from the 1930s/40s. Our best guess is that this was made in Czechoslovakia or Germany. It's in excellent vintage condition. Very unique. A happy old bracelet.
Note - While we would not call this an 'unsigned Haskell' unless we were sure of it, this bracelet does have a lot of the characteristics of her work with Frank Hess, circa 1930s/40s when they made many of these wire beaded glass bracelets, some with a similar display of whimsy in the design.
