You already know that your Champion is worthy of B.O.B. at Westminster!

Good luck at the "Garden!"You'll have even more confidence in the "Group Ring" sporting these fabulous vintage accouterment !!!!!!!I have other dog show pieces listed as well. This is for the earrings only. The reverse painted dog portraits are of what I think are the Scottish terrier category.Essex crystals, as many labor intensive processes, existed in their purest form, for only a few decades. First seen around the mid 1800s, they faded out toward the turn of the century, and then transformed into a lesser variety of pressed glass as the new century progressed. Rock crystal is painstakingly carved out from the back in an image and finely painted. The back is then sealed with gold, or mother of pearl and when viewed from the front are miniature paintings in three dimensions. Finer pieces entail deep carving and realistic carving as well as superb painting with multitudes of color. You can often judge their value not only but their lifelike qualities, colors but if you turn them to the side, their striking depth. These are clip on and they measure 1 ¾" long. These are in very good condition.
