Ask a question

I couldn’t resist the appealing gaze of this adorable English springer spaniel.

I found him in London’s Portobello Road and brought him home to Sydney. I wonder if he’ll be adopted locally?

This is a top-quality reverse crystal intaglio – otherwise known as an Essex crystal. It’s deeply carved and there is no sign of oxidisation.

The simple, high-carat gold brooch setting is pleasing too. And it’s a good size.


• Handmade in 18-carat yellow gold
• Rock crystal centre has been carved and painted with great skill
• Approximately 1 inch (2.6cm) in diameter
• Weight is 10.7 grams
• In excellent antique condition: with no cracks or chips
• Will come in a Karen Deakin gift box (the antiue box is not included)

• The terrier brooch is for sale separately. Please get in touch if you’d like more information about it

I’d be very happy to send more information and images. Layaway available.
