Reverse Intaglio Crystal Bracelet, Flower Garland
Immortalized on enamels as well as on crystals through a process called ‘reverse intaglio’, these reverse intaglio crystal red and yellow roses, daisies, etc, are detailed miniature works of art. Each charm is 0.5″ and the bracelet is 6″.
Crystal carving and painting is a dying or lost form of craftsmanship, being passed on from one generation to the next in secrecy.
There are many intaglio crystals featuring animals or hunting related themes. This is a hard one to come by, crafted and collected so well. Circa ’30s.
