Ref  LD1   Essex Crystal Dachshund

A dear little sausage, an Essex crystal reverse intaglio depicting a dachshund, circa 1900. The carving is set to a high carat gold brooch and backed with mother-of-pearl. The technique of reverse intaglio crystal carving required great skill, first carving 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 3/4 of an inch. I have not seen an Essex crystal depiction of a dachshund before and this one is immaculate.

£1650
