Silver With Acanthite Crystals
Kongsberg, Norway
Miniature, 4.0 x 2.6 x 1.9 cm
This elegant miniature features traditional Kongsberg ropey silver perched on and around a stepped cluster of superb, lustrous acanthite crystals! Acanthite of such quality is EXTREMELY rare for the locale, and especially uncommon in association with beautiful rope silver. This piece comes out of an old collection, from Australia. It is one of the most elegant and attractive miniatures I have ever been able to offer from the locale, for under $5000 or so. Plus, the acanthite is a nifty bonus.
