These unusual vintage intaglios feature a clock dial, reverse embossed on the back side of clear glass. They were manufactured in Czechoslovakia and date back to the 1950's. The edges are rough and the hand-painted numbers are far from perfect. Not only is this reflected in the very low price, but to my eyes, makes them even more charming. The back could be painted with nail polish or lacquer paint (no water base) to make the numbers stand out even more. Helpful hint: prop the face of the glass on a piece of poster putty or double-stick tape so you don't touch the edges.
These could be wrapped with copper foil, soldered, and made into a very cool altered art pendant. I've also pressed these into epoxy clay for superior results.
