These 1950’s -1970’s vintage glass cameos were manufactured in West Germany for the costume jewelry trade. They’re a rectangle shape with rounded edges, and the background is black with a metallic silver image. The image has been reverse carved and hand painted, with surprising detail. It’s a romantic scene of a pair of lovers kissing beneath a lamp post, with the Eiffel tower in the background. If you look very closely, you’ll see some holidays in the paint (these can be touched up quite easily) but otherwise, they’re in very good vintage condition.
These vintage glass cabochons have flat unfoiled backs. They’re appropriate for gluing, mounting or bezeling; they are not beads, so they do not have holes.
