ASK A QUESTION PURCHASE

This beautiful large antique Victorian hand carved cameo brooch was made Circa 1880. The cameo has been hand carved from a bullmouth shell and depicts the Greek God of Wine - Dionysus with a young female - possibly his wife, Ariadne. 
Dionysus was the great Olympian god of wine, vegetation, pleasure and festivity. He was depicted as either an older bearded god, or as a pretty, effeminate long haired youth as in this cameo. 
The ornately decorated Base Metal frame is engraved around the cameo shell. It is a wonderful find and has a safety chain for added security when worn.  
Weighs: 19.3 grams. 
The dimensions are: 51mm across and 61mm down - that's 2 inches by under 2 1/2 inches.
