Lovely high relief antique Edwardian 800 silver genuine hand carved shell cameo brooch pin. Features a lovely right facing woman in profile wearing grape leaves in her hair and down her bodice. This represents the mythological goddess of wine, a Maenad called a Bacchante (maids of Bacchus the wine god, also known as Dionysus). Measures 1-1/4" x 1". Lovely thick wide mounting frame measures 3/16" in width, the total width or thickness of the cameo in its frame is apx. 1/2" at it's widest point. Fold over safety clasp and folding bail. In excellent condition with no repairs or alterations, all original. In excellent condition, circa 1910. Has never been cleaned and retains its richly age tarnished patina, undisturbed and intact.

Please do note that all natural shell cameos when held to strong light will show fine growth lines to some extent, which is unique to each individual piece. We carefully examine all of our cameos to make sure that any hairlines do not penetrate the front and back surfaces of the shell, and do not compromise the integrity of the cameo.

Cameos make an incredible traditional bridal gift from mother to daughter, usually given with the intent of wearing at the wedding ceremony, and to eventually pass down to their own daughter. They also make a very popular choice for "Something Borrowed". We recommend storing fine cameo jewelry individually in a crush proof box, away from any other pieces that may damage them. Do not expose to extreme cold temperatures, and occasionally moisturize the shell with olive or mineral oil.
