Seems everyone liked Carnegie’s design.
Here’s an 80’s piece from KJL, literally!
There’s a neat story behind this find. The lady I bought this brooch from, her Mother was friends with the man himself..Kenneth Jay Lane! Her Mother, Bettina VonWalhof, was given some jewelry directly from him, and this is one of those pieces, so this brooch never saw a store. I’m very happy to have come upon this little guy because you rarely see ones except by Carnegie. Like I said when I posted my Kramer, I don’t really care for Carnegie's. The head is too elongated and the rs are bigger and are covered in ab. Seems the KJL version is a little more elaborate than Kramers with the rs wings otherwise, they are nearly identical, with subtle differences.
