Emerald Bead & Pavé Leaves 1940s Dress Clip by Miriam Haskell
Miriam Haskell (Unsigned)
2 1/2" x 1 3/4"
Very good (the tips of a few beads are corroded, but this minor flaw doesn't detract from the beauty of the piece)

This well-known Frank Hess World War II design features a bunch of emerald glass beads atop and hanging from silver metal leaves inset with diamanté. In typical Haskell style, the large beads have metal tips. The pierced plastic back is finished with a dress clip. This piece is unsigned, but the maker is well documented. At this stage of its life, this lovely dress clip needs to be handled with care.
