An unusually large and rare reverse intaglio rock crystal of a cocker spaniel. The domed rock crystal has been carved on the reverse with a spaniel’s head and then hand coloured before backing it with a layer of mother of pearl. Surrounding the crystal is a dog collar in 14ct gold. This was highly skilled work and pieces such as this brooch that can also be worn as a pendant are very sought after. It was made circa 1880 in Germany where some of the finest examples of carved rock crystal pieces were made.
