C1870 14k Gold Extraordinary High Relief Carved Amethyst Cameo Original Box Nr For Sale
C1870 14K Gold ExtraordInary High Relief Carved Amethyst Cameo Original Box NR
This listing is for a very fine high Victorian, circa 1870 carved amethyst hard stone cameo in a very pretty 14k gold frame. The cameo comes with it's original box. The brooch measures 1 3/4 inches or 42 mm long. The center of the brooch contains a very high relief carved amethyst of a young woman with very long hair. The amethyst is carved in very high relief. The stone is slightly translucent in a deep rich purple. Surrounding the cameo is a wire and bead work frame done in the Etruscan style of granulation and applied filigree. Beautiful work. The back of the brooch has a compartment for a photograph. The whole of the cameo including the pin are in 14k unmarked gold. The gold has been tested and is all 14k. The condition of the cameo is excellent. There are no chips or nicks in the carving. The gold frame is in excellent condition. The pin at the back of the brooch is original but the simple C clasp it would have had originally has been replaced by a safety catch, (also in 14K). There is a glass lens that covers the back where the photo would go this has a small flake, minor. There is also a very small triangular slot at the back bottom of the frame, please see photos, I am not sure what that was used for. The leather box is a bit worn but totally serviceable. Again,please see the many photographs.
A rare opportunity to offer on a 140 year old desirable hardstone amethyst antique brooch in very nice condition without any kind of reserve.
