Early signed Miriam Haskell white and beige bead/ abalone shell necklace. The claw like abalone beads are amazing.Very pretty and collectible Miriam Haskell Shell necklace. Circa 40s-1950s piece with wonderful claw like cut abalone and small shells mixed with beads. Her signature floral beaded style clasp features her hang tag. Great colors and cool claw like aesthetic! Measures 16″.
Condition: Excellent some tarnish to tag. Only possible condition issue- on the two longer beads closes to the top have a beige finish, so do some of the smaller ones and a little on the lower larger ones. I am not sure if this is a finish that faded or something that needs cleaned. It doesn’t seem to wipe off. I am including images on gray as white on white doesn’t show its details.
