QUANTITY: 44 Pieces Vintage Glass Equestrian Intaglios SIZE: 10mm x 14mm STYLE: Glass Intaglio (Crystal Painting, Reverse Crystal) COLOR: Clear Crystal with Hand-Painted Equestrian Scene UNUSED VINTAGE STOCK
These vintage reverse-carved intaglios were hand-painted in Czechoslovakia on the reverse side of clear, molded glass. The paint is not perfect (photo is representative of quality) and as they were painted by hand over 50 years ago, each one has very slight variations. Comes tightly packaged, 11 pcs. per row x 4 rows, in it's original, never-opened tissue. I have often painted the back with enamel paint or nail polish (no water-base paint) to enhance the image. Helpful hint: use double-stick tape or poster putty to hold them down to a flat surface when you paint the back. These would make a unique embellishment for jewelry, mixed media collage or mosaics. Perfect for artists and horse-lovers everywhere.
