I am so pleased to offer this fantastic pair of Essex Rock Crystal Cuff Links with Pointer Dogs. The dogs look like German Shorthaired Pointers to me. Although diminutive in size I think these could be used by a man as well as a woman. Some of my photos have small white flash spots on the crystals. They do not have spots. rock crystal is very hard to phptograph.
The following is information about Essex crystals:
An Essex crystal is a rock crystal (clear quartz) cabochon with an intaglio (recessed) carving done on the flat backside. The intaglio is then painted so when the crystal is viewed from the front the image has a realistic dimensional effect. The backside is sealed with a plain sheet of mother-of-pearl (or another material) to preserved the painting as well as providing a wonderful background. This super art form originated in Belgium around 1860 and was made famous in England. It was used for jewelry, including buttons, as well as decoration on every day items. The subjects most common for men were horses, dogs, foxes and birds and for the ladies florals.
