OLD PIETRA DURA INLAID MOSAIC MALACHITE LAPIS LAZULI $ 79U.S.
Up for sale is this Pietra Dura oval tray. It is intricately white marble inlaid with a variety of hardstones including malachite, black onyx, mother of pearl, and lapis Lazuli, etc. Very soothing flowing branches with flowers and leaves. There is a government stamp of sorts on the backside. Has a small nick on the lower left side, and another on the left of the top. There is also a crack on the right side, but passes as a vein which is common in marble. It is 9" by 6". Would look nice in a proper frame. I've included multiple pictures for your inspection. Don't know what's with my camera these days, but the blue/green tinge you see in some of the pictures, should, in reality be white.
