Call it cruise, summer or seasonal, Miriam Haskell's '50s-'60s vintage double strand white bead (sometimes called milk or chalk) necklace can wow year round. Two rows of large white glass beads (smaller top, larger bottom) are each separated by tiny white seed beads. End bars are nicely finished off with the signature Haskell beaded blossom onto a filigree back. Hook closure is also embellished with the wired bead blossom. A beaded extension chain offers adjustable size.
The necklace's top strand is adjustable to about 16 1/2 inches -- bottom strand drapes about 1 inch longer. Beads range in size from 10 millimeters (top strand) to 12 millimeters (bottom strand). Weight of the necklace is approximately 104 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components original and intact. All beads retain lustrous white gleam. No stains or off beads. No chips, nicks, cracks or breaks to beads. Strands secure with no slack. Silver tone finish has acquired an antiqued patina. No verdigris. All wiring secure. Complete and correct. Extremely clean. No damage / no repairs. Excellent vintage.
Reverse of the hook is signed: "MIRIAM HASKELL". Reverse of one end bar bears soldered oval "MIRIAM HASKELL" plaque. Circa 1950s-1960s.
White on with Haskell. Chalk it up. At Cody's.
