This is a very uncommon 1950s milk glass brooch! Just one look, and you can see the amazing French glass beads.
This brooch looks very much like brooches that were made by Miriam Haskell. The tight flower cluster is domed and there are 4 different types of beads. There are two types of flowers, bone beads, and a large bicone at the center. The beads are pure bright white milk glass with fire polished brilliant finish.
This brooch was meticulously hand made as all of the beads are wired to a button hole style back with individual black metal head pins. These head pins create a small black dots at the center of each bead, lending an overall polka dot effect. Look at the back and you can see the brushed gold metal finding with the original fine working safety clasp. The brooch is not signed.
The brooch is 1 3/4" wide and all of the beads are in perfect condition. There are no missing or loss beads and all are clean and bright. Even down in the nooks and crannies, there is no dirt or grime. The gold metal findings are clean with no wear as well. French beads, most certainly, yet it was most likely designer made in the USA.
Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new presentation jewelry box.
