Miriam Haskell vivid red glass multi row necklace, 1960s


A vibrant and joyful red glass bead and button necklace, with a strikingly ornate clasp/sidepiece, designed by Robert Clark, for Miriam Haskell in the 1960s. The clasp, which is subtlely hidden, is made out of characteristic filigree gilt 'flowers', highlighted with red buttons and beads of varying sizes.It is marked twice, once with the 'horseshoe' type mark on the filigree, the second, the more familiar, on the reverse of the actual clasp. Rich and very current, this colour really sets off and highlights seasonal clothes, a Summery, hot and uplifting colour. Miriam Haskell was born in 1899, opening her first boutique near the McAlpin Hotel in New York in 1924 with the title ‘Miriam Haskell – le Bijou de l’Heure’, selling unusual, handmade pieces, when others were fascinated with machine made pieces. A contemporary of Coco Chanel, Haskell also incorporated sophisticated French components and craftsmanship, using glass from both Gripoix and Rousselet in Paris. Her characteristic celebrated ‘baroque’ (unevenly shaped) pearls came from the Far East and were made exclusively for her, composing some of the most creative and distinguished designs of the 20th Century. Although not a designer herself, she was a v canny businesswoman who knew how to get the very best out of her designers.. Her most extraordinary pieces were designed by Frank Hess and, later, Robert F. Clark,to be followed by Larry Vrba and Connie Petronio. Miriam Haskell died in 1981, having created a hugely successful and lasting business.
