A Victorian Cameo And Gold Suite By Joseph Mayer

Description

A Victorian cameo and gold suite by Joseph Mayer, the brooch set to the centre with an oval cameo measuring approximately 32 x 24 mm, the earrings each set with a cameo measuring approximately 19 x 14 mm, suspended to a domed top with sheperd’s hook fitting and spear-shaped drops, the cameos all set to the centre of a beaded and pear-shaped scroll-designed oval frame, accompanied by original fitted case by Joseph Mayer, circa 1860, the brooch measuring approximately 4.6×3.7cm, the earrings measuring approximately 5.7×2.1cm, gross weight 28 grams.

An exquisite cameo suite by Joseph Mayer. Mayer was a nineteenth century antiquities collector and goldsmith, who collected and drew inspiration from antiquities. This set exemplifies Mayer’s passion for neoclassical imagery, featuring a wonderful brooch with a cameo depicting Diana and Cupid. Diana is recognizable from the bow she carries, which Cupid also reaches towards. The earrings feature a further goddess, depicted in profile leaning against a plinth. The cameos are fine white on pink stone, framed by Roman-style gold borders and decoration.
