A cute find, this antique late Victorian reverse carved intaglio Rock Crystal painting of a black terrier with a bell on his collar would be the loveliest gift for the Dog lover. Likely previously a stick pin it has a really nice double band and feels really familiar and comfortable on the finger. A novelty during the Victorian period, 'Essex' Crystal pieces are formed from a Rock Crystal cabochon (a polished dome of Rock Crystal with a flat base), an image or motif is then reverse carved into the flat base, and then painted, to give the impression of a three dimensional object or image encapsulated in the cabochon when viewed from above. The Crystal measures half an inch across and it is mounted in a beaded bezel of 9ct yellow Gold. Some deterioration commensurate with age, please examine our photos closely.
The ring size measures as an 'O' or '7' and unfortunately we're unable to alter the size.
