Antique Georgian Victorian Gold Greyhound Onyx Pin Cushion Paperweight
This product is sold out.
A wonderful antique onyx paperweight I believe to be late Georgian in age. The paperweight features an ornate golden greyhound centre piece studded with a turquoise glass cabochon collar. The greyhound has a charming little pin cushion centre that I believe has been added at a later date. The paper weight features no hallmarks or makers marks and has a really lovely hand made quality to it. I imagine the dog it was modelled on must have been very loved
There is some age related wear to the surface of the onyx base with some small chips around the edges. The paperweight remains in good condition for its age.
