DescriptionAMMONITE INLAY BOX WITH TIGEREYE
Handcrafted in Italy
Stone source: Madagascar & South Africa
A simple, rectangular black onyx box inlaid with a Madagascan Ammonite split into a matching right and left "mirror" pair. The fossil ammonite dates back to the Jurassic age of dinosaurs, when ammonites were everywhere in the oceans. Near the edges of the lid is a thin strip inlay of South African golden tiger's-eye providing a complimentary ornament to the ammonite. The inlay work is seamless between the three elements of the box. With gold plated hinges and felt anti-scratch feet, it is in excellent condition and measures 7 ¾ x 5 7/8 x 2 inches high (20 x 15 cm).
Estimate: $2,500 - $3,500.
