Beautiful Antique Carved Cameo With a Rare Image of Devotion And Suffering. Probably Depicting John Comforting The Virgin. A Tender Image Perhaps a Metaphor for Maternal Love. The Mounts Are Pinchbeck Gold Which is Surrounded by a Wire Work Border. The Reverse is Sealed With Glass Upon Which a Fabric Backing is Attached. The Condition is Essentially Good. However it Has Clearly Been Worn /Used a Lot as Wear Can Be Seen on The Image as Well as Some Solder Marks To The Clasp. This Type of Image is Not Common. This Cameo Brooch Most Likely Originates in Italy.
This Cameo Brooch Measures: 5 cm wide x 6 cm wide
I Would Date This Cameo Brooch to Circa: 1850
