Description

Super beautiful and rare antique Victorian Reverse Intaglio Essex Daisies Flower bouquet Ring!
crafted in solid 14k (at min) or higher yellow gold. the crystal itself in very good condition with light wear due to age, possibly could be polished by professional jeweler if the new owner decide to polish it (I did not want to ruin original condition), no cracks, no repairs! on the painting still can be recognized greenish color (for the leaves ) and yellow color for the middle part (for the biggest daisies) weight approx 5g, please see the size on the photo - it is over 4.5USA. the ring has Initials engraved on the inside back of the closed setting
the earliest Essex crystals were done on GOLD foil (since 1860). THIS ring has a golden background, not mother of pearl. it also has great detailing! "Not all carved crystals are created equally though. There are cheap imitations of the technique produced at times. The best way to distinguish a fine crystal is to view it with a jewelers loupe or other ten power magnifier - especially from the side. On the very good crystals, you will notice the depth of the carving and the phenomenal detail - and you may also see that the crystal has slight chips which have appeared over time. If the crystal is in its original mounting, the age can be assessed from the background - the earliest were done on GOLD foil." THIS ring has a golden background. the gold background works almost like a mirror on the light as you rotate it and brings picture to life!
As the art form developed, the backgrounds used differed. The foil was replaced by etched mother of pearl, and this was succeeded by plain mother of pearl.
At one time, crystals were wrongfully attributed to William Essex, an artist well known for his miniature enamel work. Although he had no connection to the reverse intaglio process, many people commonly refer to Essex crystals even today. As alluded to earlier, there are only a handful of current artists who are considered to be masters of the craft.
This technique is said to have begun in Europe (1860) and the crystal process has been attributed to a Belgian artist named Emile Marius Pradier. Some of Pradier’s early pieces were signed, which makes them particularly appealing. Such was the beginning of a treasured art form which evolved into incredible works of art in miniature.
Around 1860, Thomas Cooke began making crystals for Lambeth and Company in England. The crystals gained immediate favor, and as their popularity increased, Cooke trained a student to assist him. This student - Thomas Bean - later trained his own son and subsequently his grandson in the crystal making process.
