Fun and fanciful!Miriam Haskel has used glass beads, pink iridescent crystals and tiny rhinestones to create this bracelet. It can be worn at the wrist or further up the arm. It is old Haskell with the horseshoe mark (visible in the enlargement) placing it most probably in the 1940's. Expands to fit any size.
Trifari design patent number on the back of the brooch--#129320--reveals that the design was created in 1940, probably by Philippe for Trifari. It is a treasure, and oh so graceful in line. 4" long, 1 3/4" wide. Slightly convex, rhodium plated.
This bracelet has everything! Baroque pearls, seed pearls, mirrorbacks,and gilt bows and flowers. It is hinged and fabric lined.It has the Haskell look but it is unsigned. As can be seen in the pictures, there is some corrosion frequently found in older pieces. It is priced accordingly. In my judgement it is highly collectible and wearable, and it is so spectacular that we have broken our rule to offer only pieces that are in perfect condition. Its flaws can be overlooked...
