The previous owner cherishes this piece so much that he or she framed it in a very fine red velvet lined golden trimmed wood frame, to the back marked the framing date is that of 1970.
The center cameo piece inside the frame is definitely antique Victorian, it is hand carved depicting the front full face portrait of Aphrodite Greek Goddess of love and beauty, after the Roman museum busts dating to 100 A.D., and it is super high relief with a true 3D sculpture effect. This piece was most likely originally a brooch with three ringed setting, the setting looks very much like yellow gold but we cannot verify at this point.
The center cameo piece measures approx. 1-3/4 inches by a shy under 1-1/2 inches, and the wooden frame measures approx. 6-1/4 inches by a bit under 5 inches, would make a wonderful addition to that serious collector, or just a beautiful and unique wall decoration!
