A SUPERB and AESTHETIC thumbnail of SHARP, CUBIC silver crystals to 5 mm beautifully set on the tips of the branching, tree-like silver matrix on this historic, old-timer from Kongsberg. Cubic silver crystals are the rarest and most desirable silver crystal forms from any worlwide locality and this specimen has sharp crystals of good quality and patina. The price range, among dealers, is huge. I have seen prices at recent shows of $1250-2000 for Kongsberg cubic silvers of this quality and this piece is from Phil Scalisi"s Collection.
