These beautiful vintage cuff links are made using the centuries-old reverse intaglio technique.
They depict the profile of a pretty brown horse complete with reigns and other fantastic details.
The colors are really vivid; these cuff links would truly make an excellent gift for any equine enthusiast.
Reverse intaglio is a very delicate technique performed by carving an image or scene into a high quality piece of crystal.
The image is then painted to the craftsman's specifications and finally the reverse side is ground and polished into a smooth cabochon.
In the case of cuff links, the crystals are then placed in a bezel setting.
This type of Essex crystal is rare and incredibly collectible.
These beauties are comprised of beautiful gold-tone brass bezels and stems and are in fantastic vintage condition; truly a must-have for the serious collector.
We love these intaglio cufflinks. They are becoming harder and harder to find. The are unusual and whimsical and make an individual statement.
