Large Cameo Brooch Pin Hard Stone Sardonyx Crafted in a 9ct gold hand made mount Period stamped 9ct. A beautiful quality souvenir from a Victorian grand tour.
A truly wonderful example of portraiture in gemstone. Large & exquisite, a high oval, hand carved, black sardonyx cameo brooch. Depicting the ancient Greek goddess Venus. A rather modest Victorian take, on the more familiar classical styling.Presented here as a young, very beautiful woman, with a wonderful Victorian plated hair style, wearing a string of pearls & lavaliere earrings, the low neckline of her dress can be seen. This exquisite cameo is exceptionally high cut, a most imposing structure. Pin stem fastener with fitted safety chain & pin. The 9ct gold hand made mount does no. Justice to the splendid quality carving.
