Oyster Shell Cameo Brooch Full Figure in 14kt Gold Mount
A romantic hand carved cameo portrait. A lady dressed in a gown with long sleeves, elaborate cuffs and a flowing, ethereal wrap. She holds a fan with a tassel in one hand and a handkerchief in the other. A single long curl flows down her back and a rolled wave curves round her face. Elbow rests on a pedestal. Fabulous detail gracefully carved for a cameo ~ proof that this piece is not modern, but has excellent age. Rarely do you find a full bodied cameo done with such fine detail and character.
For those who could not afford to have a formal oil portrait painted while on Grand Tour during the Victorian era, it was customary for a woman to have her portrait carved into a cameo. This is a magnificent example carved with tenderness and grace. 2 1/8" X 1 3/4". Your cameo will be delivered to you in a very nice gift box.
