Barry Lee Hands engraved Ron Lake pearl folder

The Barry Lee Hands Engraved Ron Lake

This stunning piece features the latest style from Barry Lee Hands - all new for 2014:

The Nouveau leaf pattern

A cheerful, and flamboyant exercise of over the top ornament executed in three colors of gold- 24 k yellow, 18k green and 22k pink, and set with Sixty-two brilliant white VS, F+ diamonds.

The diamond studded multi colored fully sculpted 18K and 24k leaves are supported by a luxurious field of fully sculpted and shaded 416 stainless backgrounds, which are also set with diamonds peeking out from the ornament.

The Nouveau leaf design emanates from the rear bolster, running onto the presentation grade silverlip pearl interframe inlays, in Barry?s original ?gilded pearl? technique, contained at each end by flush 24k borders.

This design continues majestically forward into the front bolsters, culminating in a spray of multicolored gold and diamonds.

Surrounding this microcosmic universe of ornament are wide and generous borders of 24k gold, which run the full circumference of the frame.

The gold bail is set with 11 diamonds.

The tail lock tab is set with with 8 diamonds, and bordered with raised 24k gold.

These listed features alone would launch the piece into the upper echelons of Art knives, yet there is more to come.

With his never-ending attention to detail, Barry has decorated the blade with his ?burnished blade? technique, a process created by Barry inspired from the mezzotint.

And the spine of the knife is decorated in three color ?burnished gold? another of Barry?s original techniques..

To cap it off, the belly and spine are contained with fine 24k rope borders, and the ?two Hands? logo, the most delicate yet, is present on the gold bail.

Engraved for my friend Carlos Lopez

All the best,
Barry Lee Hands
