DescriptionROSE QUARTZ BOWL WITH GEMSTONE FLOWERS
Artist: Manfred Wild, Idar-Oberstein, Germany
Delicately gracing the Rose Quartz bowl, is a sprig of colorless rock crystal flowers with faceted Ruby centers. In an homage to Spring, this fine carving was created by master German lapidary artist Manfred Wild; the flowers have just opened to indicate Spring's arrival. Like a wonderful Mother's Day bouquet, the flowers arch aesthetically over the transparent pink bowl and are mounted on an 18K gold stem with a myriad of gently curving leaves. The flowers have a satin polish, while the bowl itself is polished mirror bright. There are a total of five deep red Rubies, seven open flowers, and one flower bud. Overall dimensions are 8 2/3 x 8 4/5 x 5 ½ inches high. The bowl itself is 4 inches high and the overall, total weight of the carving is 3 3/4 pounds.
Estimate: $16,000 - $18,000.
