This figural brooch of Humpty Dumpty is signed by Kenneth Lane. Humpty Dumpty has a pearlized, white lucite body complete with gold tone top hat, gloves and shoes and jaunty walking cane; silver tone face and arms; with rhinestone collar and bow and dark green eyes.
The 1970 original of this fun brooch is a book piece from the KJL book "Faking It" on page 85. This one has slight differences and a different signature. This version was presumably a reissue at a later date. If it were anyone else, I would think in terms of it being a reproduction; in KJL's case, he often reissued his own designs. Other minor differences between the two versions: Instead of glowing green eyes and gold tone "ribbon" circling down his cane, this newer version has dark green eyes and silver tone ribbon on the cane.
Measurements: The brooch is 2.25 inches tall by 1.5 inches wide (5.7 X 3.8 cm) with a vertical pin back.
Condition: It is in excellent vintage condition. Please review all photographs carefully, as they are an essential part of the description.
Marks: The back is stamped "KENNETH LANE" with a C (copyright) between the first and last name. The signature has the outline of an oval cartouche, however, it is actually stamped right on to the back metal.
