Black Bead & Diamanté 1940s Floral Brooch by Miriam Haskell
1 1/2" x 2 1/2"
None (Haskell used only paper hang tags until late-1940s)
Gordon & Pamfiloff, p. 153
This floral brooch features a cluster of black glass beads sitting atop silver-tone metal leaves paved in diamanté. These elements were wired and sewn by hand onto a pierced metal foundation with edges. The pin closes with a simple C-clasp. Another lovely Frank Hess design from the World War II era.
