A stunning Victorian tear drop door stop or porter topped with brass ring (unpolished)
Possibly the nicest, most tactile object. The colours are remarkable, varied and dense. This type of object became highly fashionable after Prince Albert took a keen interest in Cornish Serpentine. When I bought this I was told this was serpentine, but could be Italian marble as I have seen some similar patterns and colours although none quite like this.
Over 3kg in weight, in excellent condition. Has NOT been used as a door stop, but is simply an outstanding piece of decorative art.
Has provenance, as it was bought from an estate sale of a well known fashion designer to the Queen.
This really need to be in a smart London Gallery!
Ring can be polished if required.
Height : 26 cm
