Antique Huge14k "the Best" Bacchante Filigree Cameo Diamond Necklace Brooch Pin:
LARGE - OBVIOUSLY EXECUTED BY A MASTER CARVER- THE BEST WE'BE EVER HAD THE PLEASURE TO OFFER.
By the second half of the 19th Century the Cameo had become an essential item of female adornment. This lovely Victorian shell cameo (circa 1890) depicts a bacchante, a female follower of the god of wine and fertility, Bacchus. The Victorians were less concerned with mythological accuracy, instead requiring their cameos to follow the aesthetic of Romanticism. Bacchantes remained a favorite subject – but where they had been wild, abandoned followers of Bacchus – now they were softened to resemble docile young maidens with vine leaves and grapes threaded charmingly through their hair.
The ornate filigree 14KT white gold ornate setting of this brooch is unusually attractive. The necklace is set with a mine cut diamond with nice brilliance.
The brooch has a flip up ring to wear as a pendant. Measures 2 1/2" by 2". Weight 19.5 grams.
This is the best shell cameo we've ever had the pleasure to offer. Sharply and precisely executed- the work of a master carver. The mount is original to the cameo.
Condition is excellent and problem free.
Suitable for the most advanced collection, you'll not find a better rendering.
