Elegant French antique sardonyx shell cameo brooch in 18k gold setting, 19th century. The striking cameo profile depicts a strong and noble representation of Flora, Roman goddess of flowers, spring and fertility. The much-sought-after sardonyx shell medium allows for the distinctive contrast between the figure, background and delicately carved floral headdress. Enclosed in a decorative 18k gold mount stamped with the French eagle's head hallmark and maker's mark, this museum-quality jewel is truly a wearable work of art.

Condition is very good; a sliver of the shell has broken off (seen only from the back or at an extreme angle from the front). The shell rests securely in the setting which is slightly bent around the area where the shell has this missing sliver. Measures 52 x 43 mms and weighs 11.8 grams. As the items that we sell are often fragile and irreplaceable, great care is taken during packaging to ensure their safe transit and arrival. Items must be in the same condition as when received.
