Let me introduce you to "LADY BUG LANE." This darling brooch/trinket box is from the KJL, Kenneth Jay Lane vintage series "Critters" and is called "Lady Bug Lane." She is so adorable, you just have to love her. Kenneth Jay Lane had such an imagination and brought nature to life. There are 4 of these critters that he designed in this series. Check out "Madame Escargot" and Frog Prince from the same series that is also available in the shop.
Lady Bug Lane is so realistic looking, you might think that she is real. She features vibrant cherry red and black enameling on her body and is outlined with shiny gold tone findings to define herself. She is dotted with 6 large faux pearls depicting her spots and finished off with glowing green glass cabochon eyes. She is dimensional. She measures 1-3/4" long by 1-1/4" wide. She has a straight pin/roll over clasp for closure in perfect working order. She sits atop her own shiny gold tone leaf pedestal and flower bud just waiting to be claimed. Her underside is concave with striations of a gold tone setting and is signed "KJL" on an oval cartouche'. Her leaf pedestal has an intricate high relief etched pattern resembling a flower on the outside and has a flared incised pattern depicting the leaf. The pedestal itself measures 1-1/2" long by 1" wide and stands about 1-1/2" high including Lady Bug Lane nestled on top. The leaf pedestal is signed as well with the KJL hallmark in an oval cartouche' on the bottom.
