|This pair of amazingly beautiful and rare turtles are sculpted from solid rock crystal and are set upon (but not affixed to) rectangular rock crystal pedestals. The pedestals measure 6.7 x 10 x 1 in (17 x 25.4 x 2.5 cm) and the sculptures each measure 6 x 9.5 x 3 in (15.2 x 24.1 x 7.6 cm). Age and origin are unknown. Condition is very good. There are no restorations, some scratches, inclusions, and wear at the edges of the pedestals. These are the largest animal sculptures sculpted from rock crystal that we've seen available online in our ten years in business. The only pair of rock crystal turtles of comparable size (12 x 8 in) we've seen appear at major auction were offered by Sotheby's in New York on May 19 2006 in lot 154 with an estimate of $8,000-$12,000, and were sold for $9,000.|
