6 vintage oval rose or mauve pink glass pearl headpins that were made for use in Miriam Haskell jewelry. These faux pearl headpins were used as a centerpiece in cagework and wired to filigrees for the layered Miriam Haskell styles. They originally came directly from the Miriam Haskell company.
They are a shiny mauve or light pink in color with a baroque, bumpy texture. The color is the same throughout though the first picture is showing some bright pink, it is only a reflection and is not really there.
The glass pearl top of the pins are about 20 x 14mm across. Domed on top and flat on the back. The metal pin is 35mm long.
Made in Japan. The best I can date them is pre-1975. In researching Miriam Haskell pearls I learned that they are a glass base that was coated with a pearl lustre finish made from codfish scales. The book on her jewelry shows a picture of pearl headpins exactly like these (but in a different color) and states that they were made by the Niki Company. Haskell started using their pearls starting in 1958.
