Large Exquisite Malachite Specimen on Lucite Plinth from the Brody House
A beautiful specimen of Malachite originally from the estate of Sidney and Francis Brody House in Los Angeles, decorated by renown designer William “Billy” Haines.
The specimen is displayed on a custom Lucite plinth, the malachite showing fantastic striations and patina throughout. The item was donated by Mrs. Brody to The Colleagues, Santa Monica where Mrs. Betsy Bloomingdale purchased them and had them on display at her home designed by Haines as well.
We currently have two such specimens for sale. This particular specimen is 5 inches tall (2 inches shorter than the other) and has a slightly flatter top.
The piece is in excellent vintage condition.
