Vintage Miriam Haskell Necklace Signed Egyptian Bib Collar Larry Vrba Era Massive 15 Layers Haute Couture POSSIBLY OOAK EXCELLENT

Product details
You are viewing a gorgeous signed Miriam Haskell necklace. This jaw dropping haute couture statement necklace came all the way from London and was initially purchased at the Cristobal London (an upscale antique and costume jewelry store). This bold necklace is 15 layers and is considered to be an "A Level" necklace. It is extremely rare and dates to the Larry Vrba era when the Egyptian Revival was in full swing.
Treat you or your loved one with a possibly one of a kind massive haute couture Miriam Haskell bib collar today. When worn, it is sure to draw a crowd and a crowd of compliments.
I have never come across this exact necklace before. It's a variation of the book piece in the Miriam Haskell Jewelry reference book by Cathy Gordon & Sheila Panfiloff on page 216 (shown on mannequin). I am listing this well below similar "A Level" Miriam Haskell Egyptian Revival bib collars.
Condition & Composition:
The necklace is in excellent vintage condition with absolutely no wear from what I can tell. There are no missing components. The brushed gold findings are still a rich gold color not pale and I can't find any tarnish marks. All of the bead work is vibrant. Not only does this fantastic bib collar hold the famous Miriam Haskell hang tag it also is signed on the underside of hook that clasps the necklace together. It is composed of gold tone, art glass, glass, lucite and plastic beads. Several of the types of beads were so well made they look like real lapis and coral. The necklace was handmade and the utilization of both wire and string were selected.
Approximate Dimensions:
Necklace Inside Diameter Clasped After The Second Bead: 14.5"
Necklace Extender Length: 3 7/8"
Necklace Width: 3.5"

I only deal in vintage to antique wares and how items are cared for after accepted delivery is the sole responsibility of the new owner. Proper care should be taken as each item is NOT new nor should they be treated as if they are. Price does not depict durability, price depicts market value.
