Reference

See #83 on "Haskell Unsigned Clips and Pins" page on Gordon website

This well-known Frank Hess World War II design features a bunch of emerald glass beads atop and hanging from silver-tone 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 its maker is well documented. At this stage of its life, this lovely dress clip needs to be handled with care, but it has retained its original beauty.
