Weiss knocks it out of the park with it's mid century tribute to the rhinestone. Gorgeous dentelle faceted chatons, fancy and conventionally prong set, rise up and above in magnificent aurora borealis splendor, displaying flashes of purples, yellows, oranges and golds. (Some of the most effusive ab dentelles we've seen.) A circle of cup set citrine chaton rhinestones stands guard atop rails of fancy upswept finials affixed to a textured scalloped base. Reverse of beautifully finished in a high luster burnished gold tone. Long paddle clips secure.
