This cameo is monumental!

A lifelike heavenly scene unfolds before your very eyes as you gaze upon this stunning work of art. Aurora (or Eos, if you are Greek), goddess of the dawn, rides her chariot across the sky, in this cameo based on the famous painting by Il Guercino. Mythical cherubs, gods, goddesses, horses, and a chariot float among the billowy clouds; all hand-carved in perfect detail in shell and framed in exquisitely carved gold made to resemble coral branches.

This one of a kind Victorian cameo brooch is Italian, in a handmade American aesthetic-movement frame. Everything about this cameo is just perfect. It is the kind of original piece that very few have occasion of seeing in person... And YOU have the chance to add it to your collection.

Measures approximately 3" across (75mm), by 2.5" tall (60mm). 23.4 grams total weight. Unsigned, unmarked. Tested 14K. Pristine antique condition.
