Antique Victorian carved shell cameo of the young Dionysus, framed in sterling silver, large in size. Finely drawn and exquisitely executed, this brooch shows the beautiful god in profile with his hair drawn back, intertwined with grapes and cascading curls. He wears a drape that knots at the shoulder. You will fall in love with this gorgeous depiction.

Big and eye catching, the brooch measures 2-1/4" by 1-7/8". The sterling frame, 3/16" at widest, is smooth and contoured to match the shape of the shell. (There is no division in the silver along the sides. Photos three and four show reflections). The c-clasp works perfectly.

There appears to be a lozenge at the bottom, not identifiable. The condition of the cameo is excellent. Streaks of white shell are intrinsic to the piece. There are no cracks or other issues.
