This unusual and hard to find set of Essex Crystal pieces are a pair of cuff links and matching tie clip decorated with tall ships on the high seas, their sails billowing in the wind. Essex crystal jewelry are made of clear glass which is intaglio cut, with the image carved out from the back. They are then reverse painted and backed with a shimmering mother of pearl effect. This set is then set in gold tone to finish the look. In all my research of Essex Crystal I did not see any other ships so I believe this may be a more unusual design.
Each piece is 1 3/16" long and 1" tall. The tie clip is 1 1/2" long in total.
In great condition they show a little light wear from age but they would make a wonderful vintage gift for Father's Day, or a great addition to a collection of Essex crystal.
