    It is hard to decide which captivates your attention more: is it the enormous Rock Crystal bowl? or the lovely pair of Rose Quartz Cockatoos that grace each end? Peter Müller's impressive creation raises that question because the bowl measures an impressive 18 x 9 x 6.75 inches (45.7 x 22.9 x 17.1 cm). That means that an enormous quartz crystal had to be used just to create this majestic Rock Crystal objet d'art. It is very well carved and polished mirror bright. Flanking each handle of this bowl are are mated pair of cockatoos, rendered in Rose Quartz. They have Amethyst crown feathers, Garnet beaks and eyes, and are perched with gold plated Sterling Silver feet. The bird on the left is 10 inches (25.4 cm) long with a wing spread of 14.5 inches (36.83 cm). The bird on the right is display his crown fluffed out and is 11.25 inches (28.6 cm) long. Maybe they are thinking that this bowl is their private birdbath?

    Estimate: $15,000 - $18,000.
