***PLease note the wire wrapped piece (pic 4 & 5) is not included in this listing - I simply wanted to show you what can be done with these cabochons.
I recently moved my warehouse and I've found delightful treasures I thought were long gone. This piece is a rare 1940-1950's German glass scarab - 39/30 size oval - measures 2 3/8" long bottom to top of bail - 1 3/16" wide. Fabulous detail front and backside. The backside is especially stunning - flat in nature with excellent detail in the hieroglyphics.
I added the 2 pictures of a pendant I have listed for sale in another listing - point is - the backside is so fabulous I really think whatever your creating with this beauty - you should leave the backside exposed - you just don't see this quality these days in a cabochon.
