Do you want a coffee table book full of beautiful pictures? Here it is. Need a price guide to Miriam Haskell jewelry? Here - with real insight and useful information about what makes pieces more or less valuable. Do you want to know more about the history of the company and of the people who made it? There is a wealth of carefully researched information, much of it never before published.
Best of all, for fans of Haskell jewelry, is the detailed information about construction techniques, designs, lines, beads, findings, and all the details that allow us to separate the wheat from the chaff, and genuine Miriam Haskell jewelry from the mountains of lookalikes and wannabees.
This is a masterpiece of a jewelry reference book. If only they were all this good!
This hard cover book with dust cover has over 600 photographs
by co-author Sheila Pamfiloff unless otherwise indicated - other contributions duly noted on the acknowledgement page....text starting with the history of Miriam Haskell - to identifying and dating Haskell Jewelry - advertising and a fine example of Haskell Watercolors - on to the Haskell Designers , Frank Hess, Robert Clark, Peter Raines, Larry Vrba, to Camille Petronzio who will carry the Legacy Forward - into the future of Miriam Haskell.
Each page of this 256 tome of work is aglow with text or pictures of this exquisite work of Miriam Haskell. Cathy and Sheila
in their text and photographs have paid close attention to
showing detail plus workmanship and design even finding a group
of a collection of old Haskell filigree charts.
Chapter 3- Advertising and the Haskell Watercolors - have matched the watercolor with an actual piece of the jewerly. What
finer attribution could be shown as with the ad and the piece
Great care was taken in the presentation and page set up of
this publication. Jewelry collectors of all levels will find
this work of art a must for their jewelry library.
Beautiful photography of mouthwatering jewels show the front as well as the most important and often neglected backs of the jewelry, clasps, findings, etc. This book sets the standard that all books on costume jewelry should follow. Not just a pretty picture book, but the ULTIMATE jewelry reference. Thank you Cathy and Sheila for a SPLENDID job well done!!
