Here's what I know about this piece. I picked up several of them in the late 80's. I bought whatever I could afford to buy at that time just because I love snakes. I bought them in a Providence RI warehouse. They came from an over run. They are not signed but I believe that they were made for KJL. They are not damaged or misshapen in any way.
The smaller beige 1/2 glass domes are a creamy pale color. NOT givre's but an opaque solid. The spine is has a royal blue & clear rhinestones. The head has 2 light blue marquis cut eyes. The tail has 2 pear shaped blue rhinestones. All the stones are entirely prong set. The back is a high polished silver plate. I think this piece was actually ahead of it's time.
The entire piece measures a beefy 4.5 inches long and 2.5 inches wide. I like to tell buyers to draw those dimensions out on a piece of paper to get an accurate feel for just how big this piece really is. It will not do for a silk blouse but rather stunning on a jacket or blazer.
Over the years I have seen this item re-produced - sometimes larger sometimes smaller. I can only tell you 100% what I know of this piece. It's a lovely piece that I've hoarded for many years in mint never worn condition.
