MINT(+) 1/2(-)" Antique German Handmade BANDED SOLID CORE Swirl

Item# GM1898
I hate to be so repetitive about these PeeWees, but still, I am continually amazed at the skill it took for these 19th century glass artists to produce such a detailed work as this in such a small size. At the core of a crystal clear, less than 1/2", marble, the maker has managed to combine multiple ribbons of blue, green, white and teal into a nearly perfectly formed solid core, and then surrounded the whole thing, on the surface, with four sets of equally space red lattice lines that has left us with a piece of eye-candy to marvel at for well over a century.
CONDITION: MINT(+) 9.8 or better. The surface is wet and shiny as a new marble. I can find no flaws to describe, despite the fact that this marble has been subjected to well over 100 years of perusal.
