Wonderful swirled and marbled poured glass cabochons (pate' de verre), signature elements of Robert Clark designs, feature prominently in his glorious leafy, layered brooch. Along with bent metal components, here in famous Haskell Russian gold tone, and rose montees that trace and outline, as well as traditional faux pearls, Clark's designs from the late '50s - '60s are some of Haskell's most adored. Frank Hess, Larry Vrba and Millie Petronzio also played starring roles in the Haskell epic, each with their own inimitable style.
Clark's magnificent brooch measures a generous approximate 3 1/4 inches long x 1 7/8 inches at it's widest point with a 5/8 inch profile or height. Green glass cabs are about 13 millimeters x 6 millimeters. Largest pearl is approximately 5 millimeters. Weight of the brooch is about 32 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components intact. All wiring and soldering secure. No chips, nicks, flea bites, cracks or breaks to stones. All rose montee rhinestones intact and very brilliant. No dark, cloudy, yellow, gray or dead stones. All faux pearls retain nacre and luster. All Russian gold tone finish intact, front and back. No verdigris. Pin back straight, strong and secure. Extremely clean. No damage / no repairs. Near pristine vintage.
Reverse of the brooch is signed within an oval cartouche: "MIRIAM HASKELL".
