Pear Tree Log for her post on a family heirloom brooch. Her post gave me the idea for today's Show and Tell . It is an old piece of costume jewelry I collected many years ago.
All these years I've referred to it as the Miriam Haskell Brooch. I have no idea of it's value, but it is a signed piece.
I'm not sure of it's age, but she opened her first boutique in 1927, when hats were in style. If you want to know more about her history, click on Miriam Haskell.
Now that I know it is a hat pin, the dilemma is, " Should I buy a new hat or just go with my old gardening hat?"
