This is a large and well executed oval Cameo of Bacchus, Goddess of Wine, with some very fine detail - look at the folds in the shift dress. The artist / carver has used the different layers / colours of the shell to accent the hair and dress corsage. It sits in a substantial simple solid 9ct gold frame which closes with a pin and safety clasp and has a safety pin and chain for extra security. I love Cameos - they are a wearable form of Art and will never go out of fashion. I think every woman should have at least one cameo in her collection.
Condition is very good with just a very fine stress hairline in the top left hand corner but this does not go through to the rear. Size: 2 1/8" (5.5cm) high x 1 3/4" (4.5) wide.
