The silver filigree backing is double tiered, typical of older Miriam Haskell. The oval cartouche is on the back. The brooch is 5 1/2" by 4".

Haskell's various shaped glass beads in crisp white, red, and blue is great for warm weather dressing. This long rope necklace (54") and the matching wrap bracelet (7" around, 3/4" high) may have been designed in honor of the bicentenial in 1976. Each piece has the Miriam Haskell oval tag attached.

In the style of Paco Rabanne who introduced "metal clothing" in the late 1960's, this Italian halter is something you are not likely to see again.

Fits size eight, approximately.
Beautifully made brooch with charm to boot. Enamel with faux pearls on gold plated metal. Trifari plaque on the back. 2 7/8" long, 1 5/8" wide.
