A fantastic example of a carved reverse intaglio. It is most likely the head of a racehorse with a bridle and martingale. He has been cut in reverse and coloured. This is an art which is highly technical. One slip when carving and the rock crystal could shatter. The mount is 18ct gold with a horseshoe motif. It was made circa 1880. All our tie pins come with a stopper at the end of the pin.
