Large Antique Carved Shell Cameo Of Bacchus With Ram's Head For Sale

Offered is a large antique carved shell cameo of the wine god Bacchus. He wears grape leaves in his hair, and a sheepskin with the ram's head sitting on his shoulder. The carving has good relief and nice cream and caramel coloring. There is some tiny pitting in the shell, this is natural. This piece is quite old, about 1850-60. The gilt metal frame has a delicate roped border and some etched motifs, but is not in perfect condition- there are some dings and discolorations, but it is still very wearable and attractive as an antique Victorian/ Civil War period piece at an affordable price. It measures 2 1/8" by 1 3/4'. Thank you for looking and please see my other listings for more cameos and vintage jewelry items, both fine and costume!
