1930s Unsigned Miriam Haskell Rhinestones & Flowers Earring, Bracelet & Brooch Set
Well-known costume jewelry designer Miriam Haskell made her name by creating affordable pieces from the 1920s through the 1960s. Her highly collectable works of art were worn by Ziegfeld Follies girls as well as celebrities such as Joan Crawford, Lucille Ball and even the Duchess of Windsor. It is rumored that the incomparable Ms. Crawford owned every piece Miriam Haskel ever produced, so she may have had this set in her collection as well!
Many of Haskell's earlier pieces were not signed, but her trademark design elements give clues to what is one of her creations and what is not.
This lovely set features what Haskell loved most: flowers and rhinestones! Wired on a metal grid in true Haskell form are petite baby blue plastic daisies with dark blue rhinestone centers. This set includes a metal clamp bracelet, a brooch and a pair of screwback earrings. Having all three of these pieces together is a rarity in and of itself!
Even though this set has been well loved, it is still quite stunning and would be a great addition to a Haskell collection!
Bracelet: 2.75"; largest ornament measures 1.5"
Paint is chipping off of the metal on each piece. The center flower on the bracelet is half broken. Priced accordingly.
