This beautiful piece seems to be quite rare, as after research I struggled to find any comparable objects. Described as a paperweight, this piece is covered in a malachite and fleur-de-lis pattern with gold outline and a stunning central cameo pendant of “King of the French” Louis Philippe, who was the monarch of France from 1830 to 1848. This item is perfect for Francophiles or also makes a lovely and unique piece to add to a collection of malachite patterned items. Ready to display or to use on your desk top for an added touch of European flair.
This paperweight is in beautiful secondhand condition with no chips, breaks, or cracks. There is small rubbing wear to the top side, shown in the photos in this listing, but it is in overall excellent condition. Please inspect the listing photos closely for more details on the condition of this piece.
This item is approximately 3.5 inches in diameter and 2.75 inches high.
