1960's Large Cufflinks and Brooch Set - Arachne Spider Legend

Here is a most unusual statement set of Cuff links with a matching brooch pin.  Executed in the manner of "Essex crystal" the set has a reverse-engraved glass panel with a picture etched on it. Against a deep rose plaster pink background is the ledgend of Arachne picked out in a Russian gold. The panel shows the spider in its huge web with the head of Arachne doomed to spin for all eternity whilst the Goddess Athena looks on.  This set dates to the 1960s and is original and quirky.  These Cuff Links are the largest I have ever seen being a massive 3cms by 2.5cms. The rectangular brooch is a slightly larger size being 4cms by 4.5cms although the cabochon panel in all is the same size, it is just the golden metal mounts that alter the dimensions.  The mounts have a shaped edge and the brooch has a a row of cornucopia shaped designs along its border with a rope twist gallery to the jewel. Offered in very good order the cufflinks have a T Bar back and the brooch fastens with a roll over type clasp to the pin.  A reminder to not annoy the Gods and Godesses!
