Reverse carved intaglio jewelry are miniature works of art. For many centuries, dogs, horses, birds and other images have been portrayed in art. For the last 100 years, these subjects have been immortalized on enamels as well as on crystals through the process of reverse intaglio. Crystal carving and painting has always been a family enterprise and one of the few art forms to develop in secrecy, passed on from one generation to the next.
