These Miriam Haskell earrings with milk glass beads and disks, rhinestone rondelles, and gold-tone findings have a real Machine Age look and associated movement. However, the French clips date them to the late 1940s. I still consider these earrings to be Art Deco in style, and I’ve seen the same motif used by this designer (Frank Hess) on earlier pieces. Whatever the style, these ear clips are lots of fun! Scroll down to see some coordinating pieces in milk glass.
This 1970s necklace of milk glass beads and white sea shells was made later than my usual 1920-1960 scope, but this piece is so whimsical that I bought it anyway. This necklace can be worn long, doubled or even tripled! It closes with a slide clasp. This piece works well with some of my other milk glass pieces, including a pair of earrings by Miriam Haskell — scroll down to see them.
Two layers of milk glass beads sitting on silver metal filigree form a simple bow in this charming 1950s brooch by Miriam Haskell. The pin closes with a roll-over safety clasp. You can wear this brooch with some of my other milk glass pieces, including earrings by Miriam Haskell — scroll down to see them.
This 1950s milk-glass-beaded triple-row wrap bracelet has round faux-mother-of-pearl plagues on each end decorated with brass filigree and flowers of tiny milk glass beads and diamanté. This lovely wire bracelet is probably from Japan, which produced a lot of very nice costume jewelry for export to the U.S. in the 1950s. This bracelet coordinates well with other milk-glass pieces from the same decade — scroll down to see them.
