A beautifully detailed 9ct gold brooch with a reverse intaglio crystal of a trout on a fishing line. Reverse intaglio crystals are incredibly difficult to master as although rock crystal is an extremely hard stone it can shatter under pressure. Only a few artists were able to cut the rock crystal in reverse and then colour it. This one is set on to a piece of mother of pearl to give the impression of water. It was made circa 1900-1910.
