Ref  BR4  Essex Crystal Cat

An extremely fine quality and well executed reverse intaglio crystal of a tabby cat set to a high-carat gold brooch with granulated decoration, circa 1870. The technique of reverse intaglio crystal carving required great skill, first cutting out a domed natural rock crystal in intaglio and then painting the carving in fine detail. The effect achieved is photo-realistic. The brooch measures 1 and 1/8 inches by one inch and is immaculate.
