A Georgian hardstone cameo ring, the oval shaped agate cameo measuring 23 x 18mm, depicting Bacchus in his one hand holding his thyrsus, in the other a goat’s skin, rub-over set in a yellow gold mount with closed back and tapering shoulders, unmarked, tested over 18ct gold, circa 1780, the head measuring 28 x 24mm, finger size N, gross weight 24.9 grams.
An enchanting late eighteenth century cameo ring. This piece features a yellow gold band and rub-over setting, in which is encased an agate cameo. The cameo depicts the detailed and fine image of Bacchus, the Roman god of agriculture, wine, and fertility. The thyrsus held by Bacchus is a staff topped with a pinecone and tied with a ribbon, which symbolises prosperity, fertility, and hedonism. In the other hand, Bacchus carries a goat skin in a contrasting light brown colour. This gorgeous piece reflects the late eighteenth century interest in neoclassical themes and images of Ancient Greece and Rome.
