A Short History...

This brooch was most likely created by Frank Hess. He was the first designer appointed by Miriam Haskell. He specialised in creating pieces that featured beads woven with wire onto gilt metal filigree backings. This brooch is made from the Haskell company's signature richly hued gilt metal and is certainly a very collectable piece. 

Wear it With...

This brooch would add striking detailing to a denim jacket or to a wool jumper worn with a 1950s circle skirt.
