Hand of Fate Paperweight

65.00

This exquisite paperweight features a mid-19th century French ivory cameo and a Spanish ivory hand amulet, dated about 1600, known in Spain as a "higa", with lightly touching thumb and index finger in the "mano cornuta", a potent gesture against evil. (both from the British Museum). But in this collage, the hand seems to be offering a vintage botanical blue tulip to the mysterious lady, while a tiny Victorian cherub looks on mischievously. The background is of a blue and grey 19th century hand-printed wallpaper pattern. This is a totally enchanting and unique gift or get it for yourself to add mystery and charm to your mood of the day.

Wipe with a damp washcloth to clean.

This paperweight is 4.25" X 2.75" and weighs 0.9 lbs.
