BSK

BSK apparently was the signature for B. Steinberg-Kaslo Company. While they produced all kinds of jewelry, they are probably best known for their "My Fair Lady" series which was sold in theatres during the running of the 1962 movie starring Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison.

Description: BSK My Fair Lady Top Hat, Gloves and Cane Brooch - So, are these Professor Higgins' or Colonel Pickering's? Don't know, but this is one of the less common of the MFL pieces, and certainly gives the right vibe for a night on the town. Hat is a medium brown with a clear rhinestone hatband and a red rhinestone accent, cane is black and is topped with a single red pear; gloves are enameled white. Goldtone setting, very good condition, with some enamel loss on the cane. 2 1/2" x 3/4".

Description: BSK My Fair Lady Henry Higgins Hat - Perhaps Homburg would be more exact? Goldtone with inset lines; these look like they are black enameled in the picture but in person they are not and weren't ever. The hatband is done in clear rhinestones, with a single ruby colored rhinestones in the center of the decoration. Signed BSK with copyright symbol, and My Fair Lady in an oval cartouche. About 1 5/8" x 3/4", 3/8" deep. Excellent condition.

Description: BSK My Fair Lady Professor Higgins Slippers - "Eliza, where are my slippers?" Here they are, and very hard to find, I might add. One of the most elusive styles of this series, these sage green enameled slippers are edged with clear rhinestones and set in goldtone. Signed BSK with copyright symbol and My Fair Lady in an oval cartouche, this measures 1 1/2" x 3/4". Excellent condition with a couple of factory bubbles in the enamel that can be seen, greatly magnified, in the picture, and a tiny spot of enamel loss on the toe of one slipper.

Description: BSK Goldtone/Silvertone/RS Curved Link Bracelet - This bracelet is made in three curved and two flat links so that it fits much like a clamper style would - kind of a hybrid, if you will. Center link has two parallel rows of clear rhinestones separated by a raised goldtone area. On either side is a silvertone, rhinestone set "x", and larger back links have a swirl of clear rhinestones similar to the center. Goldover clasp is marked B.S.K. and a copyright symbol, goldtone safety chain looks original. Goldtone throughout except for the rhinestone set sections which are silvertone. A very elegant look, not too glitzy for day, not too plain for night. Tapered design, 3/4" at center, down to 3/8" wide at clasp. Curvature makes this difficult to measure accurately, but should fit a 7" wrist. Excellent original condition, goldtone looks very nice in person.

Description: BSK Oranges/Yellow/Cream Enamel & RS Brooch - This is a great 1960's brooch that would look perfect on the tangerine colored clothing that is popular right now. Cream colored background is accented with yellow flowers and light and dark orange enamel leaves - topaz colored rhinestones are sprinkled throughout. Goldtone setting, 2 1/4" x 1 1/2" . What appears to be wear on the backside is actually mostly reflection, any wear is minimal. Excellent condition. This would be a piece I could see Megan in "Mad Men" wearing on an orange sheath. Bargain priced.

Description: BSK My Fair Lady Flower Cart Brooch - Enameled flowers are done in pink, cream, and peach enamel, with clear rhinestone centers. Green enameled leaves and a few clear accent stones finish the design. All goldtone and done in layers for a 3 dimensional effect (reverse side shows where the layers are riveted together.) 1 7/8" x 1 1/4". Excellent original condition, we have been lucky enough to find a second one of these.

Description: BSK Demi Parure in Green - This set features a matching necklace, brooch and two pairs of earrings. Small olive green barrel beads are each set with a tiny peridot (lime) green rhinestone, and lime AB rhinestones accent all three pieces. Link necklace has adjustable chain and will fit up to a 16" neck (could be extended farther if needed). Brooch is 2 1/8" in diameter but looks larger because of the density of the materials used. Earrings are clip, rounds are about 1" in diameter and other pair is about 1" x 3/4". Darker goldtone plating, all items in excellent condition.

Description: BSK My Fair Lady Basket Necklace - While the popular My Fair Lady brooches are still fairly easy to obtain, the necklaces, bracelets, cufflinks, etc. are NOT. This three dimensional basket is done in creams, peaches and greens, and accented with clear rhinestones. Nice quality chain measures close to 20", goldtone. Basket is about 1 1/2" in both directions. Excellent condition, everything original.

Description: BSK Seashell Pin - Done in a satin goldtone finish with a paved rhinestone silvertone center, this three dimensional pin measures approximately 2" x 1 3/4" x 1/2" deep.  One of the small clear rhinestones appears to be a replacement.  Fun for the collector who spends time at the seashore.  This is a typical style for BSK.

Description: BSK Shoebutton Earrings in Orange, Brown and Aurora Borealis - I have seen this particular style done by BSK in olive and peridot; here we have orange and brown mottled wound glass beads with topaz rhinestone centers and topaz aurora borealis accent stones. Goldtone, leaf motifs, clip mechanisms. About 1" in diameter.

Description: BSK My Fair Lady Black Enameled Hat - As you can see from the picture there is also enameling in yellow, peach, orange, olive green and cream, with clear rhinestone accents. Enameling is worn at the high points. About 1 1/2" in diameter, goldtone. Of all the pieces that BSK manufactured, the MFL pieces, made as memorabilia for sale in theatres when this motion picture was released starring Audrey Hepburn, are probably the most sought after, with the hats commemorating Eliza's "triumph" at Ascot.

Description: BSK My Fair Lady Open Parasol Pin - One of the more difficult to find pieces in this series, the parasol came in both an open and closed version. Black and white enamel with clear rhinestones, goldtone setting. Very good original condition except that the white enamel has some bubbles in it and the enamelist got some black "strings" on the white in one section that almost look like tiny cracks but are not. Very minor factory flaws only noticeable under a loupe but price reflects. Piece shows little if any wear marks. 2 1/4" x 1 5/8".

Description: BSK My Fair Lady Cream Enameled Hat - The cream version of the above hat SP12-419, this is in only fair to good shape as the enamel on the crown is badly ding-ed. When I got this it appeared that someone had tried to cover up the dings with nail polish, which I have removed as much as possible. The flaws actually look much worse in the picture than in person, but I have priced this very reasonably reflecting this. 1 1/2" x 1 3/8", goldtone setting.

Description: BSK My Fair Lady Pink Hat - One of the most difficult to find in this series in this color (usually found in cream with fall colored flowers and ribbons). Enameling is in quite excellent shape, with a small ding off of one flower, a few tiny scratches under one ribbon and along the side of one flower. Pale and hot pink with medium green enameling, clear rhinestones, goldtone, 2" x 1".

Description: BSK My Fair Lady Charm Bracelet - This difficult to find collectible features charm versions of several of the well-known brooches, and a few that probably weren't brooches but were only made as charms. Here we see Professor Higgins' fedora, Eliza's straw boater, binoculars from Ascot races, one of the dowagers' fans, a lady from Ascot and one of the horses and jockey, and Eliza dancing with His Royal Highness at the ball. Only the boater is marked BSK and My Fair Lady, but I am quite certain that this is exactly as sold and is in pristine original condition. All goldtone, foldover clasp, about 7 1/4" including clasp.

Description: BSK My Fair Lady Professor Higgins Hat Cufflinks - Done in shades of brown enamel and accented with clear and ruby colored rhinestones, these are in excellent condition with no dings in the enamel (very unusual). Though probably aimed at the men in the audience when this film was shown in the 1960's, I see no reason why they couldn't be worn by either sex if you have a shirt with French cuffs. 1" x 3/4", much more rare than the brooches.
