LHC-126. AGATE BOWL. An amazing product of the pre-war Idar-Oberstein, Germany lapidary traditions. This bowl was carved from a rare, large block of translucent Brazilian agate that had, originally, a surface of small quartz crystals and the carver skilfully retained those crystals all aound the rim of the bowl! The wonderful baroque form with its agate eyes follows the original shape of the rough stone. 10-1/4x8x5 inches.
