Early Miriam Haskell Seashell Brooch
Whimsical pin from the period when Haskell pieces were not signed
Included are photos of a similar shell brooch from the book "Miriam Haskell Jewelry"
by Cathy Gordon and Sheila Pamfiloff (page70).
Being a collector of seashell jewelry I found this pin especially fun.
Designed in the shape of a huge flower blossom the big shells depict flower petals.
A variety of art glass beads are hand wired into the center of the (shell) flower.
These shells are tinted a very light aqua blue color, beautiful and softly iridescent.
The center beads are vibrant and colorful in red, shades of blue, green, yellow and orange.
All of these elements are hand wired onto a pierced silver plated metal inner plate and
then covered over and finished with a solid silver plated metal plate.
These pieces are so unique, Some of my favorite Haskell pieces show her use
of natural things such as these shells in her designs.
Very good vintage condition
Please keep in mind though we may rate vintage jewelry as in very good to excellent vintage condition, these pieces are pre-owned and may show very gentle wear. This is only pertaining to normal wear as in very slight loss of brilliance in stones, faint, barely visible scratches on metal, and patina on certain metals such as brass and silver / silver plated metal
Measures approx. 3~1/8" in diameter
It is sure to be a favorite in the unsigned nature themed Miriam Haskell jewelry collection as well as a fun pin to wear
