Such an elegant oval cameo panel in the Etruscan Revival mood. The highest quality of craftsmanship has created this captivating silhouette portrait of a Grecian goddess of banded Agate in shades of darkest grey and white (in which the background shows as semi translucent when held to the light).
The whole speaks of another age of mesmerising beauty and romance. The frame also is very fine indeed, being elaborated with beaded and intricately cut gold wire work of stunning quality and certainly inspired by the work of Fortunato Pio Castellani. A worthy centrepiece to any collection.
The whole is heavy and sit over two cm high, the complete brooch itself measures 3.5cm by 4.5cm, the cameo 2.5cm by 3.5cm and fastens with a classic pin and safety clasp.
