Cameo Glass, Acid? Cut Back With Horses And Gold Overlay
« on: September 11, 2010, 02:18:00 AM »
Hi all, New to the glass message board. This piece is interesting. It is layered cameo style ruby red over greenish blue over clear  with high quality gold overlay on the horses and trees. I'm assuming it is acid cut because there are no tool marks. Any suggestions?

Hi, welcome to the Board.

Could you please provide images that are ...
a) larger (up to 700 pixels wide is ok as long as they are l25Kb or less)
b) in focus
c) on a plain background

Personally I do not see any ruby colour in the smaller images but perhaps it is just not showing well. Larger images would help to properly see the working processes.
