This wonderful antique Victorian cameo brooch features a pinchbeck frame and a central bullmouth shell carving depicting the side profile of a Bacchante, a follower of the Roman God Bacchus, God of wine and festivity, who are often depicted with berries and ivy leaves in their hair. 

Roman-style Cameos 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. 

A wonderful piece of history that’s highly collectable and all in excellent condition.
