Victorian 18ct Gold Rock Crystal Reverse Intaglio Tie Pin of a Pheasant

Sold

146/J

A very handsome rock crystal tie pin of a pheasant’s head. It would be an ideal present for someone who shoots. These tie pins are very sought after as rock crystal is a hard material to carve, especially in reverse and then coloured. A lot of these crystals were made in Germany in the 19th century.
