Miriam Haskell Wood Bead and Stars Dress ClipSKU: 5593
Colorful woods beads in round, bell and floral forms are beautifully combined on this lovely WWII era Miriam Haskell dress clip. With a restriction on the use of metals during that time, plastic was used on the dress clip to hold the beads with cotton thread. A wonderful example of war era jewelry and the materials used during that time.
Miriam Haskell began business in 1926 in New York City and the company continues making jewelry today.
