Early unsigned Haskell book chain enamel and Asian style charm necklace. The first pieces made by Frank Hess were unsigned. The dragon motif was used in a series of these necklaces attributed to the company by collectors. These designs have been debated and entitled by researchers the Miriam Haskell deco Asian or Chinese chain link necklaces. This attributed Haskell piece is 16″ long. The necklace has tarnish and age to the brass links in areas. Line in green bead finish, stable a bit of wear to a bead or two. It is missing one small brass ball. These older pieces can sometimes be tricky in terms of attributing them but looking to the elements helps. Florenz Ziegfeld, decorated the Follies ladies with her designs as well as Lucille Ball.
