DescriptionSMOKY QUARTZ WILD BOAR ON POLISHED ROCK CRYSTAL
Artist: Peter Müller
Stone Source: Brazil
Carefully carved out of smoky Quartz, this wild Boar is sitting on a polished rock crystal base. With Garnet eyes and bone tusks, he sits patiently waiting for the rest of the group (the sounder) to catch up with him. His dense fur is captured in detail and his finely polished base offers contrast to the texture of his body. Quartz is a hard stone to carve and polish, and master carver Peter Müller shows his expertise in this carving. It bears his unique collection number #8860. The wild Boar measures 5 x 3½ x 2¼ inches and the overall sculpture is 5½ inches high, 4 inches wide and 3 inches deep. In fine condition.
Estimate: $2,500 - $3,000.

It would indeed have been much simpler to work with a local auction house, and we had local options. But we never once regretted going with Heritage.View More Testimonials
