A fortune teller's crystal ball on a gilt leopard head stand

A wonderful, very large (25cm!) crystal gazing ball and stand.

The base of the stand is gilded metal and has the most wonderful leopard head and cartouche motifs.

The ball is a later addition as it is fairly smooth whereas very early ones are rippled. It nestles perfectly in the stand. It’s large itself at around 12cm! It’s very heavy.

These are very rare, decorative things and becoming so far to find, so do not miss out. This is a stunning, show stopping, unusual example.

The perfect centerpiece on a gypsy table, or addition to your wunderkammer. A great piece for any interior.

The final image shows another example we have on offer, available separately.
