Emerald Bead & Pavé Leaves 1940s Dress Clip by Miriam Haskell
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 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.
