This exquisite and retired figure is a work of art created by Jay Strongwater, the company famous for jeweled and beautiful obejts d’art for the home. The magnificent Nautilus Objet figure, from the now-retired Lustre collection, is beautifully crafted and detailed. The figure features the shape of a nautilus shell and is hand-painted and enameled with dramatic striping done on the shell, and the careful detailing done with hand set sparkling multi-colored Swarovski Crystals. It originally retailed for $1175. The shell includes a bespoke green Verde Antico marble base.
Figure presents well and is in very good vintage condition, with minimal display wear and patina commensurate with age. There is scattered minimal loss to enameling on edge of aperture on shell. The marble base has one small repair to one corner.
