An excellent and unusual antique 18k gold ( marked) stick pin with a beautifully detailed high relief carved cameo in two-color agate hard-stone which has both black and white layers. It is in its original box.
This is a very detailed cameo, crisply carved. The cameo depicts the high-relief portrait of Apollo, with his symbol of lyre. This is a rare subject masterly executed.A perfect cameo carved with so much skill by a true artist.
It truly represents a work of art. Victorian circa 1870s. On the back of cameo, it's signed by the artist.
Size of cameo: 2cm/ 0.8"
length: 7cm/ 2.75".
A very desirable collector’s piece, not to be missed.
