Blown glass eyes in marquetry box Siegel Stockman
Pair of blown glass eyes in a marquetry presentation box inlaid with mother of pearl. These eyes came from an old siegel-stockman factory in france where they were used in the fabrication of shop dummies/mannequins. Each hand-made in the 1930’s they are incredibly lifelike and beautifully crafted objects in their own right. I have decided to present them in a marquetry box which is included in the lot, however with imagination, there are any number of ways to present them as a quirky, original curiosity. Dimensions eyes: 3.5 x 3.5 x 4.5 cm. Dimensions box: 12.6 x 8.7 x 5.5 cm. This item is made of glass and wood, mother of pearl.
