Amourelle Pearl Wreath Pin
A wonderful old wreath design pin made of twisted imitation pearl glass seed beads held onto an intricate goldtone mounting by 4 floral garnishes, each of which has 2 prong set rhinestones in the flowers. This piece may look a lot like a Haskell due to the fact that the designer, Frank Hess, formerly worked for Haskell. The back is as intricate as any I have seen and is signed with a heart shaped placcard marked “Amourelle”. There is some pearl coating coming off the tiny beads and a little patina has started to appear in places, but probably could be cleaned off. I think it adds to the charm of the piece, so I will leave it up to the buyer to clean it. The safety catch is in good working condition. Pin measures 2 1/4″.
