"Carmel Mission" Size: 2.39" Price: SOLD

This is one of the coolest and most unique marbles I have ever sold, highly collectible. It comes with the signed certificate that I scanned and show below. I've got one of these in my collection as well, and it's probably my favorite O'Grady vortex. Kevin mixes many of his own colors, and for this one, he mixed all of these colors by hand, and they are the same colors he used in the murrine cane. Very unique color palette, you won't see colors like this anywhere else in the boro world. This is the first of what Kevin is calling his "Mission Series", and features his favorite California mission. It is a beautiful murrine. The little millie you see on the backside are the stained glass window, taken from the cane used in the mission murrine - I love that. And of course, the backside is awesome just by itself! The history, the awesome murrine, the colors, everything together make this one of the coolest marbles ever! Please read the certificate for more about the mission itself.
