A Victorian hardstone cameo brooch, the oval-shaped hardstone cameo depicting a female face in the Roman style, set in a gold rub-over mount with brooch fitting, measuring approximately 47 x 37mm, gross weight 30.9 grams, circa 1870.
A wonderful nineteenth century brooch. This piece features a beautifully carved profile cameo of a Roman woman with curling hair and a laurel crown. The large cameo is set on a translucent chalcedony stone encased in yellow gold. This cameo would be an eye-catching addition to a lapel.
