This is an excellent quality Victorian era Essex Crystal brooch, featuring a hand painted duck, as part of a collection of hunting scenes. Essex crystal is a unique Victorian era style of jewellery that was developed in Belgium, where a polished cabochon rock crystal (not glass) is hand carved on the underside, like a reverse intaglio. Then the carved-out design is painted so that it seems to float, in three dimensions, inside the crystal when viewed from the front. It is incredibly skillful work, and they usually depicted country side scenes such as these.
