Striking piece! A beautifully hand carved antique Victorian pink coral cameo depicting a bacchante maiden in her signature grape vine hair decoration and a ram head pelt over her shoulder. She also has a thyrsus, which is a pine-cone tipped staff by her side. Rarely do we see all these desirable elements all together, and in such great details!
The cameo is set in a 9K yellow gold (tested) frame with twisted rope decoration, to be worn as a brooch, it also has a top loop currently attached with a very fine yellow gold safety pin, which can be replaced by a jump ring to wear the piece as a pendant is desire.
Measures approx. 2 1/8 inches by 1 3/4 inches in very good condition. There are a couple of very faint natural lines barely noticeable and certainly bear no consequences. Pin back is in perfect working order, the carving is still as fresh and crisp as some 150 years ago, no surface wear what so ever, carved in high relief, so beautiful.
