Emerald Bead & Pavé Leaves Frank Hess Dress Clip
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)
None (Haskell used only paper hang tags until late-1940s)

This Frank Hess dress clip is a well-known World War II design. It features emerald-glass beads atop and hanging from silver-tone metal leaves inset with diamanté – much like a bunch of grapes. In typical Haskell style, the large beads have metal tips. The components are hand-sewn onto the pierced plastic back, which is finished with a dress clip. This piece is unsigned, but its maker is well documented. Although this lovely dress clip needs to be handled with care, it has retained its original beauty. An elegant addition to your jewelry wardrobe!
