Vintage Kenneth Lane Christmas Pin Brooch Set Franklin Mint
Vintage Christmas Pin Brooch Set by Kenneth Jay Lane is a limited edition, six piece confection from the 1990s. The ultimate gift for any Christmas jewelry collector, this set was done by revered American jewelry designer, Kenneth Jay Lane. The rich gold medallion on the plush deep green velvet Christmas tree shaped box says, "Jewels of Christmas by Kenneth Jay Lane".
The six pins depict time-honored Christmas motifs, a Christmas tree, Reindeer, Santa Star, Wreath, Candy Cane and Candle. The pieces are beautifully crafted and finely finished. They sparkle with high quality crystal Austrian rhinestones, probably Swarovski, and heavy 24 karat gold plating. Each pin is signed, "FM" for Franklin Mint, and has a safety closure. The set and box are in Excellent/Near Mint Condition and the pins have never been worn.
