Pair of 18 carat gold reverse intaglio Greyhound crystal cufflinks

A pair of 18 carat gold mother of pearl backed reverse intaglio Greyhound crystal cufflinks. Each cufflink carved with a different image of the Greyhound in coursing motion. The idea clearly derived from Eadweard Muybridge’s study of the Greyhound’s gait, conducted as part of his very famous study of various animals in motion, ca. 1878–1879. Muybridge’s work changed how artists painted the likes of Greyhounds and horses in motion. Very unusual crystals, clearly commissioned by a very proud owner. Marked to the bar and ring “18ct”, with further indecipherable poinçon marks. Complete with original gilt tooled leather box. French, circa 1885
