Handsome Essex Crystal Horse Cufflinks
Masterful Essex crystal cufflinks come down to us in near mint condition. Of equine subject matter, the horses are painted and carved so they face in the same direction and can oppose each other on each wrist, or face each other. Do read more about the carving and history of these remarkable rock crystal carved and painted objects in our “Reference Section”. Dating to the turn of the 19th century, they are of the highest quality of carving and painting. Viewing these from the front or to the sides, the horses are lifelike and rendered with great skill and consummate care. Each one is slightly different a testament to the hand work – one even darker roan brown, another with a long white spot on its nose. Even in such a small cabochon, the three dimensional carving is right up to the dome of the rock crystal cabochons. Set in 14k gold, these are American in origin and are hallmarked “14 k” on each of the backs. Backed with mother of pearl, it adds luminescence to each painting. Each cabochon and its plain bezel surround measures 5/8 inches around and 1/4 of an inch deep (1.5 cm by .6 cm deep). Condition is excellent with a tiny amount of dust on the interior if viewed with a loupe and one small nick on the surface of one crystal as seen with magnification. Perfect for a man or woman, makes French cuffs a must! Circa 1900 - 1910. Purchased well, this is an excellent price point for these cuff links.
