Vintage 10K Gold Filigree Frame Shell Cameo brooch/Pendant, Bacchante Woman adorned with Grapes - image 1 of 9

Here for your consideration is this lovely brooch/pendant featuring a beautifully carved cameo that depicts a Bacchante maiden with her hair adorned with grapes. Bacchante ladies were women associated with rituals and celebrations which included the drinking of wine, thus the grapes in their hair. The Bacchanalia Carnival were Roman festivals of the god Bacchus based on elements of the Greek God Dionysia. The cameo brooch has a gold filigree frame that is accented by delicate heart shapes curls with gold leaves. Not only can you wear this cameo as a brooch there is a bale on the reverse so that it may be worn as a pendant. The bale is on a hinge so it can be dropped out of sight when not in use but swings the loop into place to enable you to wear the brooch as a pendant by attaching your chain. The brooch is made of 10K Gold, a nice size measuring approximately 1 1/2 inch by 1 1/4, that will display well. The brooch maker is not known but is marked 10K on the reverse of the clasp. The condition is very nice it will be a lovely brooch to add to your jewelry collection. The next owner may want to give it a bath in warm soapy water to enhance its appearance. It will be a wonderful addition to your jewelry collection or a nice gift for someone special.
