Vintage Miriam Haskell Rhinestone Pin Brooch Starburst Design Horseshoe Mark

Vintage Miriam Haskell Rhinestone Pin Brooch Starburst Design Horseshoe Mark

Clear rhinestone brass black brooch

This is an awesome vintage Miriam Haskell pin, dating to late 1940s, and I believe designed by Haskell’s top designer Frank Hess.

The pin is a 2 1/4″ diameter starburst design. The metal is dark “antiqued” goldtone color I have not cleaned it so I don’t know if or how much it might brighten up if you choose to clean it. The back has pretty openwork filigree design. There are 10 flower “petals”, each set with clear marquis and chaton rhinestones, with 1 large stone in the center. The petals are attached at the center in such a way that allows some movement of each one.

Signed Miriam Haskell on horseshoe shaped plaque, one of the designer’s early marks. There are no missing stones. The locking C-clasp is a lighter (silvery) color so I’m not sure if this is original or possibly a replacement.

This would make a wonderful addition to your own collection, or a lovely gift for a collector on your list!
