Antique Reverse Intaglio Stickpin


Reverse intaglio stickpins became widely used from the mid 19thC.
Also known today as Essex Crystal.
Basically a cabochon crystal was carved and then painted on the inside to give a realistic three dimensional image.
Hugely collectable today, and price depends heavily on the condition, and of the course the subject.
