|Re: Puzzling Chinese charm Haskell-style necklace -- beadiste||Post Reply||Edit||Forum||Where am I?|
This certainly does look Haskell in-style. Is there any reason to suppose that Chinese manufacturers copied her look? Or that her look was a copy of Chinese export wares?
I bought two Haskell necklaces explicitly to take them apart to harvest the cloisonné beads. I sort of regret that now. But I eventually traded two of the three beads I acquired to a mutual friend of ours anyway. And he certainly has few qualms about cannibalizing a Haskell necklace for the more-desirable beads. (Having done this many times.) So it's not-unheard-of practice.
I have made the assumption that many of Haskell's metal findings are European rather than Asian. Do you think some are Asian (Chinese)? I'm referring to the stamped filigree elements that are typical of her work.
I would be happy to see other specimens you have documented.
