An exquisite large museum quality cameo brooch made of a very beautiful Victorian Sardonyx shell carving showing a bust profile of the God of wine and revelry, Dionysus or Bacchus.

He is traditionally portrayed as a handsome young man with flowing curls, wearing a wreath of large blooming grapes and vine leaves. A lion’s pelt is slung over his shoulders, with the lion’s face superbly carved in fine detail. Dionysus also bears his thyrsus, a symbol of fertility.
Cameo dates back to 1840-60.

This is an incredible work of art, very detailed cameo, clearly carved by a true artist.

Frame is 15 ct gold, tested, very sleek and elegant, perfect match to enhance the beauty of the cameo.

Rarest cameo and a very desirable collectors' piece.

Size: 70x58 mm including frame.

Condition: excellent, the shell is in fine condition, some faint structural lines can be seen when cameo is back lit (not stress and not classed as a fault), frame is also in good order, original c-clasp, closes well, fantastic quality piece in rare to find perfect condition.
