ThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnail

A finely detailed 15ct gold brooch of a working spaniel carved in reverse in rock crystal. This was quite a process and highly skilled as rock crystal is one of the hardest stones to carve especially in reverse. After completing the carving it has to be coloured and backed with mother of pearl. The subject is lovely, a spaniel alert and ready for the shoot. The bar part of the brooch is a collar and a lead which wraps around the crystal intaglio of the dog. It also has white gold detail on the buckle parts. It was made circa 1900-1910.
