Description

An exquisite Antique mid-Victorian hand carved Bullmouth shell Cameo Brooch made Circa 1860.
The Cameo is a well executed high relief carving depicting two elegant women who appear to be dancing with their classical Greek dresses twirling with their movements which brings the image to life.
Cameos have been carved since ancient times and saw a revival during the Victorian era due to Queen Victoria’s fascination with the pieces.
The Cameo is set in an ornately decorated Base Metal frame with floral motifs etched into the metal. It is a true collector's piece and beautifully preserved.
