Large Malachite Specimen on Lucite Plinth Designed by William Haines
A beautiful specimen of Malachite originally from the estate of Sidney and Francis Brody in Los Angeles, decorated by renown designer William “Billy” Haines.
The specimen is fixed to a custom Lucite plinth of Haines’ design, the malachite showing fantastic striations and patina throughout. At some point Mrs. Brody donated this to The Colleagues, Santa Monica where Mrs. Betsy Bloomingdale purchased it and was displayed in her Haines designed house.
We currently have two such specimens for sale. This particular specimen is 7 inches tall (2 inches taller than the other), and terminates with a sharp edge at the top.
The piece is in excellent vintage condition.
