MINT 25/32+" Antique German Handmade RED/WHITE ALTERNATING LATTICINIO SWIRL

Item# GM1843
Here's one of the German handmades that has become really hardto find, and consequently, everyone seemw to be looking for an example of their own. This is the RED and WHITE ALTERNATING variety, in the large, nearly 13/16" size and wonderful mint condition. The glass is crystal clear and the colors are exceptionally bright. The pontail marks are both unfinished and as clean as the day they were made. All of this goes to show that the marble was made sometime in the late Victorian period, circa 1880-1910.
CONDITION: MINT 9.4 The surface is nice and shiny with a couple of short scuff marks that show up under magnification, and in the third enlarging picture. As stated the pontail marks are as clean as the day they were made, and once dirt gets into these unfinished pontail marks, it is impossible to get out--Further evidence that the marble was never played with.
