Small Cabinet, 7.3 x 7.0 x 3.2 cm
Betzdorf, Siegerland, Germany
Ex. Richard Hauck
This is an exciting piece - a very rare old 18th or early 19th century specimen of classic elongated fibrous malachite crystals, from the noted old German district that produced the best malachites of the day besides Russia. It is relatively aesthetic, and has crystals to 1 inch, which is of very good size. I have seen only a handful of specimens of ANY quality on the market, of this classic style and from this locality
