Tie Bar Vintage Gold Fill Tie Bar Glass Intaglio Horse Head Gem
Here's a wonderful 1940's vintage tie clasp set with a domed glass intaglio "gem" with the face of a horse. An intaglio is like a reverse cameo, the shape is carved inward, in this case from the back, and painted from the back. The intaglio is bezel set and soldered to the tie clasp. The solder is a large blob which may be an old repair. Back of clasp is marked: GFD 10K (10 karat gold filled). The bezel and back of intaglio look silvery in color, not gold. Clasp is 2" long. Intaglio is 1/2" in diameter. There's a short scratch on the glass surface above the horse's cheek but the condition is quite good otherwise. Purchased from an estate sale.
