This is a lovely reverse carved intaglio pin from the late 1800's early 1900's. The pin is 1 7/16 inches by 1 1/16 inches with a dimensional height of 1/4 inches.

This might be rock crystal, as many of these pieces are, but it could be glass. I am not certain how to identify the difference. It is backed with genuine mother of pearl shell. With a magnifying glass it is possible to see the shell texture, and the piece has a clearly visible luminescence. The sides are faceted.

The carving is well done with a lot of fine details. The painting is very well done with a lot of textural detail. The paint has not run, as is common on these pieces, but is well defined. There are minimal air bubbles.

The glass or crystal has a little bit of texture and some use or wear marks. The piece has no cracks, chips, or scratches on the glass. The silver tone setting has use and wear marks, but no major damage or corrosion. The pin and catch are a simple wire hinge and simple c-clasp, which function well. The piece is not signed or marked.

This is a gorgeous of a Victorian reverse carved intaglio pin with a distinctive and well done design.
