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...
