Title [Faux Book] Stone Book with bands of different marbles for the spine
Book Condition Near Fine
Seller ID 005121
A beautiful stone book made of marbles, with its multi-colored spine and contrasting corners, measuring 146 by 78 by 19 mm and weighing 20.4 ounces, or 1 pound, 4.4 ounces. The bands of orange, green, white, yellow and black marbles on the spine, most of which have veining and other highlighting, lend the most character to this faux book. For the "joint", there are long narrow strips of the yellow-ish marble. The "boards" are primarily a black marble with white and yellow veining. Corners are of the brown/orange marble, suggestive of leather corners. Sleek and smooth, this would make for a wonderful paperweight. Dating is elusive, as is the exact provenance. With a few tiny edge nicks, but we are comfortable grading this stone book as fine.
