This exquisite antique Victorian brooch features a large, high relief cameo hand carved from a bull mouth shell depicting two women, one a larger lady with a basket of fruit and wheat on her head.
Roman style Cameo’s were highly sought after in the 19th century during the 'Grand Tour' days when tourists developed a fascination with destinations such as Rome. They often depicted Goddesses and characters from mythology and became a favourite of Queen Victoria also.
The cameo is set in an ornate, golden metal frame with a rope edge border. It’s a wonderful work of art and complete with a strong pin and safety chain for added security when worn.
It’s in excellent condition and a wonderful work of art.
