Haskell--Unsigned Clips and Pins
There is a fascinating variety of unsigned clips and pins created by Haskell from the late 1920s through post-WWII, and this album provides a detailed sampling of a number of examples.  By spending time with these pieces, you will be able to identify these unsigned gems.  Consult the album on clip and pin backs to round out your education.

My mother collects Miriam Haskell brooches.  I enjoy buying them for her and researching their history.

Hi, I'm just doing research on the characteristics of MH jewelry.  Thank You so much!

Great information, Your book is always quite helpful as well. I had found several Haskell pins prior to researching information about her. I identified them because the quality is superb.  Once you recognize the design and construction features characteristic of Haskell, you are almost certain to weed out the wannabe's versus the originals.  However, it is always very helpful to see new additions to your site to help in my search for her early pieces.

Re the leather pin you have in here - where you said "weird". I have something similar but more intricate where she used braided leather and wooden beads.  I would be happy to send you a picture for reference if you'd like.

Thanks so much for your thorough research.

I just found a signed piece yesterday in my collection and now that I've seen your collection I wonder if I don't have more that are unsigned--this was so informative (thanks for sharing!!!!)!

NOT A HASKELL. Back of the pin.  Haskell did not use this style of pin finding.  Also, the twisted wires for the beads and leaves are not a Haskell construction technique.  Also, the wiring across the pin finding is very messy, not something that Frank Hess would have allowed out of the shop.

Again, note the pin styles, different from the two Haskell pieces shown in prior pictures.  Based on the trombone clasp, I believe the red/white/blue pin is French.  Haskell bought many, many of her findings from France.
