Ruby Bead & Rondelle 1940s Miriam Haskell Brooch/Clip

Ruby Bead & Rondelle 1940s Miriam Haskell Brooch/Clip


Additional information


Miriam Haskell


2 5/8" x 1 1/4" (at bottom)






None (Haskell used only paper hang tags until late-1940s)


Gordon & Pamfiloff, p.140

This Miriam Haskell brooch, which is also a dress clip, has deep-red glass beads separated by rondelles and small flat beads in silver metal findings. A World War II-style dress clip is attached to a pierced plastic back. Frank Hess used this Machine Age-style in other designs. (Scroll down to see a similar pair of earrings.) I bought this piece from Haskell expert Cathy Gordon, who indicated that the pin stem was probably added to the dress clip at a later date. In addition to wearing this piece as a clip or brooch, you can wear it as a pendant on a black cord (shown in the last photo) or on a silver or white-gold chain. The 17″ black cord shown is included with this purchase.
