Vintage Reverse Carved Cufflinks Dogs Sterling Silver

This is a lovely pair of vintage cufflinks set in sterling silver and featuring reverse carved and painted crystals depicting terrier dogs. Unlike many of these cufflinks, the crystals are on both sides of each cufflink and they are backed with what appears to be mother of pearl. These reverse carved crystals are often referred to as Essex crystal. These are marked Sterling and F & B for Foster and Bailey. Foster and Bailey made a wide range of jewelry and silver items beginning in 1898 and continuing through until around the 1950s. I can't date these exactly but I believe they are from the early 1900s.

The cufflinks measure about 5/8 inch by about 1/2 inch and they are in very good condition. There is a dark patina to the silver which could be polished off if desired. I don't see any damage or other issues.
