A showy, old-time and classic, bladed azurite "ball" from the famous mines at Chessy, France. This excellent piece is a pristine floater. The ancient Chessy mines were closed by the end of the 19th century and this is a fine example of a classic form and species. Ex. Harvard and Dick Jones Collections.
