Edwardian Racehorse Essex Crystal Pendant/Charm c.1920

SKU: NL071

A fabulous Edwardian Essex crystal with a racehorse jumping. The jockey has yellow and blue racing silks and is seen mid jump. The details are carved into a piece of cabochon rock crystal in a technique perfected at the end of the Victorian era.  

 

Working from the flat back of the crystal, the artisan carves a detailed 3-D design into it. This design is then painted (in revserse with the finer details done first) and then the crystal is backed with mother of pearl so that the design seems to float, in three dimensions, inside the crystal when viewed from the front.  This technique is called a “reverse carving.”  

 

This wonderful piece is mounted in gold with a gold runner ring and would be perfect as a charm or a small pendant.
