Antique German Handmade: MINT(+) 11/16" CAGED LATTICINIO SWIRL

Item# GM2260
Although it does present with a bit of a blue hue that is cause by the refraction of the outer ribbons, the base glass is transparent clear with a fair amount of tiny bubbles. At the core is a tight lattice web, and the entire marble is caged with six equally spaced translucent tri-color ribbons running from pole to pole. The pontail marks are both unfinished indicating the marble was made during the latter part of the German handmades period, circa 1870-1910.
CONDITION: MINT(+) 9.7 The surface is wet and shiny looking with no sign of play or wear. I can find a single pinprick that may or may not be as made and is so insignificant that these enlarged pictures failed to find it even with six unique views; I take that back--look at the extreme outer edge of the fifth image. The pontail marks are as clean as the day they were made.
