Each of the domes is wired to the base plate while the center structure and pin mechanism is riveted. Stone color is an almost electric blue -- retaining nearly all of it's original brilliance. Center specialty crater stone is indented or concave lending an arresting array of sparkle and shine. Though not signed, signature period work from Czechoslovakia.
