TWO butterflies went out at noon... And waltzed above a stream,
Then stepped straight through the firmament... And rested on a beam;
This is a stunning 12 Karat Gold Filled brooch in a gracious floral design. It is signed K.L. 12K G.F. on a raised oval plate at the back of one leaf on the brooch and on the back of the screw. It is not Kenneth Lane to my best knowledge, as he is not known to have signed his pieces in this way. Perhaps it is Karl Lagerfeld or even someone not yet known??? All I know is that it is a very beautiful piece!!The flower is a carved bone rose with exquisite workmanship and details. The twisted, flat wire frame is in a high polished
finish and the very realistic leaves are florentine. It is in Never Worn condition.
The brooch has a safety style closure and measures 1 7/8" in diameter and the screw style earrings are 5/8" and as light as a feather!

This set was made by a Norwegian manufacturer. It is signed with the greater and less than signed ( < > ) overlapping each other. I have no idea who this is, but would love to hear.

It is in Excellent, Never Worn condition with safety style closure on the brooch and are screw style earrings that can easily be made into hanging posts or wires.

This is a magnificent set of earrings and brooch by Royal Adderley of England in Bone China. Though the flowers of the brooch are not identical to the earrings I can not bear to see them parted, unless absolutely necessary. They are amazingly realistic and very 3-dimensional, with the flowers forming a wonderful, mounded floral bouquet. The Earrings are Forget-Me-Nots, still in their original box, and the Brooch is a bouquet of what may be Iris. The pale blue to white coloration is exactly the same in both and all are the same tri-corner shaping due to their brilliant green leaves. The centers of the Forget-Me-Nots are a very pale yellow. All are in Never Worn condition. The earrings are clip on style and the brooch has a safety style closure.
They are equilateral triangles, with the earrings measuring 1" on each side, and the brooch 1 1/4"

This is a beautifully feminine Coro (Script) set of earrings and bracelet. They are a combination of Ivory color plastic flowers and buds over a heavy vermeil frame set with leaves and veins on the bracelet also, for accents. This set is in Excellent, yet lightly worn condition with one small flower missing on the bracelet, but barely noticeable with all that is going on and not at all objectionable for its age. The Earrings are Clips and the Bracelet has a Fold-over style clasp w/safety chain.
The Earrings measures 1 1/2" in diameter and the Bracelet measures L 8" x w 1 1/4"

This is a wonderful, eye catching set. It has an outside row of faux pearls and an inner row of rose colored aurora rhinestones surrounding the black & white composition Cameo on the pendant. The earrings are plain, and all are set in a multi-pronged cage setting. The finish is a very heavy vermeil and between the pearls and the rhinestones there is a piercing in the setting to capture and disperse the light. It is in Excellent, never worn condition
with the earrings a clip style. There a simple ring attached, making it ready for your favorite gold necklace.
Pendant measures H 1 3/4" x W 1 3/8" - Earrings measure H 7/8" x W 1 5/8"

These next two sets are all hand blown Venetian glass, from the island of Murano. They are VERY OLD, purchased in the early 1930's, but may have been a bit older. They were wrapped in tissue paper so old that was literally crumbling when I unwrapped them and the cello tape was yellowed and brittle. They are all strung on very fine (possibly high C) piano wire (or it may even be violin strings...), though they used gut not long after that, and then either linen, silk and ever ultra fine chain soon after.
VENS~0005 is a lovely, deep pink polka-dot glass.

VENS~0007 is a swirled white and clear bead with a lovely, feminine rose colored "flower" layered into the glass.
ID# VENS~0007 ~~ Price ~ $70.00
This is a lovely, graceful, yet eye-catching set. It has an outside row of aurora stones, each individually set. The inner area has 5 more aurora stones, surrounding the heavily vermeiled winding ribbon effect. The earrings also have the ribbon effect with a center aurora stone. The vermeil finish did not photograph as colorfully as it should have but it is a light color, not the typically deeper variety. It is in Excellent, never worn condition with the earrings a screw style and a safety style clasp on the brooch.
Brooch measures 2 1/2" diameter - Earrings measure 7/8" diameter.
