Item details

This amazing rhinestone piece is another item I was lucky enough to get at an estate sale of a woman who, for years and years, was Kenneth J Lane's sales rep here at the market center in Dallas. When I saw the enormous collection she had, I snatched up as many pieces as I could get my hands on before the slew of hovering women could squeeze in. It is undeniably a KJL over-the-top piece and was among her KJL collection. So that's the provenance! Looking at it closely I believe this piece is very likely to be a prototype which never made it into full production evidenced by the solder work on the backside. I don't know, but I suspect this fine lady had a connection with someone in Mr. Lane's concept department. I have it listed as a supply simply because it lacks any clasp or bail.

Anyway, it is large and measures 2" wide and 4.5" long. All plating is in mint condition as are the rhinestones. Make sure you check out the last picture I provided of the back side as proof of the "hand made" construction. All solder points are secure but a bit of a mess. The center stone is a huge green hunk of foiled backed glass measuring 18mm.

Thanks for looking.
