This is an amazing salt from Quezal. It displays a gold iridescence and very strong hues of Fuchsia on the inside. It is a beautiful piece with platinum, blue, purple, green, and strong fuchsia tones. The piece changes in color as you turn it in the light. It has vertical ribbing and a very tiny raise and fire polished top lip. The salt was made to compete with L.C.T. Tiffany Favrile and Steuben Aurene Salts.
This salt is in excellent condition there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. This piece has a beautiful polished pontil. It is signed on the bottom "Quezal" cipher as pictured.
