although I have been an engraver for 30 +years I am fairly new to "cased glass". This piece is clear crystal glass with a fairly thick casing of cobalt blue crystal on the outside, basically the deeper you cut into the piece the lighter the blue becomes so you can get various tones of colour and even cut right through the blue into the clear crystal below to give white , I have engraved many many portraits in my time but this is the first one on colour cased crystal. The piece is to commemorate the battle of Trafalgar bicentenary with 3 panels -one with Admiral Lord Nelson, one with his flag ship H.M.S.Victory, one with a scene of the battle.
