This is a statement piece belt, signed K.J.L. (Kenneth Lane) belt features an amazing combination of faux turquoise and milk glass tones in an intricate design. Those familiar with Delizza and Elster belts will recognize the ornate metal work combined with the over-the-top look! D & E did do some work for KJL, and my guess is that this is one of them! The belt has three rows of the turquoise patterns, with four rows of white glass stones between and at the edges. The center design is a flower design that emphasizes the faux turquoise look. Quite the show stopper!
Measurements: The belt equal is 32 inches long by 2.25 inches wide with a hook closure. It is shown on a mannequin with a 25.5 inch waist and there is just a little room to spare, by the time you add clothes and take into account that it is a wide belt. I would not recommend it for a waist larger than 26 inches, as it is NOT adjustable.
Condition: The condition is in very good condition with a few replacement white stones. The closeup picture shows where a couple missing stones were replaced with ones that are smaller than others - the regular size stone that matches the rest would not fit. I took a couple stones from behind the clasp, which I did not end up using because of the size issue. They will be included with the belt. Please use the zoom feature to review all photographs carefully, as they are an important part of the description.
Marks: A cartouche on the back of the center flower design is stamped "K.J.L." and "R" for registered.
