Gorgeous Grand Tour Expertly Carved Blue Lava Cameo Bacchante Maiden For Sale

Gorgeous Grand Tour Expertly Carved Blue Lava Cameo Bacchante Maiden

I am pleased to offer this lovely antique Hand Carved Lava Cameo. It depicts a Beautiful Bacchante Maiden with grapes, vines and tendrils flowing in her hair. The lava in this cameo is agorgeous shade of blue with a slight hint of green. It is expertly carved.

It was a souvenir from somebody's Grand Tour and dates to about 1860. These lava cameos were favorite souvenirs of ladies who traveled to Italy - this status symbol proved that they had been on the Grand Tour which was an essential undertaking of any Victorian with means. Lava from Mt. Vesuvius provided Italian cameo carvers a plentiful medium to create these small works of art.

It measures 1” by ¾” not including the extended pin. At some point in time the hinge was replaced as was common with fine pieces to keep them secure. The c-clasp appears to be original.

The cameo is bezel set and has a lovely beaded design frame.

The cameo is in fine condition showing no wear in the intricate design. The tiny grapes are perfectly formed and all the detail in her face and clothing is beautiful.

A beautiful cameo that would make a fine addition to your collection. Offered at $9.99 with . Thanks for looking!
