Exceptional Stingray and Fish Mural, 50 m.y.o.
This beautiful Stingray and fish composition is truly a rare find. The stingray Heliobatis radians provides remarkable detail, from the very fine disc and fin bones to the deadly tail barb. The four fossil fish that surround it (Knightia eocaena), are also exceptional in preservation and composition. Quarried from a rare limestone found in the famous 18" layer of the Green River Formation. The stone "Mosaic Lake I" appears in only a few regions in the formation and is known for its unique tan and grey color, delicate texture, and exceptional fossil preservation.
 
Pair of Dueling Pistols by Chalet & Gonon, in case
Circa 1860, France
The exceptional cased pair of 45 caliber dueling and target pistols by Chalet and Gonon calls to mind the era of gentlemanly disputes. As beautiful as they are deadly, these percussion cap pistols are superbly crafted with adjustable rear sights, an unusual feature during this period. Octagonal rifled barrels measuring 10 1/2 inches are held within beautifully carved ebony half stocks, which are adorned with an oak leaf motif. Fluted grips are capped with pewter plates, and the locks, hammers, trigger guards and trigger plates boast engraved spiraling vine decorations.
