A great conversational piece, this pendant certainly has a story to tell!
Glass intaglios were originally produced by James Tassie (1735–1799) who was a Scottish gem engraver and modeller. Tassie modelled in wax. They were then cast in coloured paste or glass against a background of subdued coloured paper placed behind. Others copied the technique. The shank is a lovely fluted design.
