This beautiful antique Victorian Volcanic Cameo brooch is set in Silver and was made Circa 1860. It has been expertly hand carved and depicts a high relief image of the three Graces.

In the early 19th century during the 'Grand Tour' days of the English aristocracy, tourists who visited archaeological ruins in Italy brought Lava stone home as souvenirs and had them made into fabulous jewellery pieces that were created depicting Gods, heroes and creatures from ancient mythology.  

The Three Graces is a Neoclassical sculpture, in marble, of the mythological three charities, daughters of Zeus. Euphrosyne, Aglaea and Thalia who were said to represent beauty, charm and joy.
The brooch is a wonderful find and has been well preserved though a hairline fault is visible across the 3 graces ankles - This is not very noticeable though and is otherwise in Good condition.
Weighs: 17 grams.
