Excellent condition

Beautiful carved setting on this mother of pearl shell. This specific mother of pearl shell has a very warming hue with natural shades of green, purple and yellow throughout. The colors of the shell come to show very vibrantly when placed in front of a window and the sun shines through. Words cannot come close to describe the beauty of this shell when the sun hits it from behind. The engraving shows flowers and grasses with a praying mantis. Very high quality. Exceptional sample.

The shell is engraved by a Balinese craftsmen, who has mastered the art of carving and has been passed down the skills by has fore fathers.
Comes with black metal stand.

Width of shell: 14 cm.
Height, including stand: 19 cm

Please check with your local regulations and authorities if it is allowed to bring items made of mother of pearl into your country, prior to bidding.

Will be packaged with great care and shipped by registered post, using DHL Parcel (with a tracking code).
