Measuring 2 1/4 inches by slightly under 2 inches this incredible antique piece is carved angel skin coral and 14K yellow gold. The theme is Ariadne, wife of Bacchus god of wine, with wine grapes and leaves in the hair and all around the setting. The frame is signed in two places, once on the hinged bail and again at the bottom of the setting. The raised relief of the cameo creates such a dramatic flair, please view all photos to fully appreciate its glory. There is some delicate splintering in the cameo, but no major cracks all the way through. Dionysus is the Greek god of the grape harvest, wine and fertility. Bacchus is the name that the Romans gave to Dionysus. The total weight is 19.1 grams.
