QUANTITY: 4 Vintage West German Glass Terrier Dog Intaglio Cabochons
SIZE: 21mm Round
STYLE: Vintage Intaglio / Crystal Painting, Glass Cabochon
COLOR: Clear Crystal Background, Reverse Embossed Painted Dog Head


These are a beautiful example of the art of miniature painting. Hand-painted in Western Germany on the reverse side of clear, embossed glass, they date back to the 1950's. As these were painted by hand, each one unique with very slight variations. The crystal background is clear and beautiful on its own, but could be painted with nail polish or lacquer paint (no water base) for a different color background. I've experimented with silver as well as deep celery green with great results. Be sure to let the paint dry thoroughly (a few days to a week is best) before gluing into a setting. If you are using a prong setting, this does not apply. Perfect for dog-lovers and artists everywhere.
