Miriam Haskell 1940s Vintage Bow Brooch

This brooch is a lovely example of the costume jewellery produced in the 1940s by the Miriam Haskell company. 

Condition Report:

Very Good - Some wear to the gilt metal surface consistent with age and use. This is only visible upon close inspection and does not detract from the overall appeal of the piece.

A Short History...

This brooch was most likely created by Frank Hess in the late 1940s. He was the first designer appointed by Miriam Haskell. He specialised in creating pieces that featured faux pearls and diamante woven with wire onto gilt metal filigree backings. This brooch is made from the Haskell company's signature richly hued gilt metal and, whilst it may not be in perfect condition, it is nonetheless a collectable piece. 

Wear it With...

This brooch would add vintage interest and detailing to a bridal look. Yet, it is subtle enough to be worn casually pinned to the collar of a shirt.
