An exceptional Victorian lava cameo pendant.
This is an expertly carved lava cameo, reminiscent of the Italian masters in very high relief.
It has a fine portrait of Dionysus, The God of Wine in Greek mythology he was also known for fertility, theatre and madness, quite a mix.
The lava cameo is housed in a smooth oval 9ct Rose gold frame with a chunky gold bale.
This is a piece that could quite sufficiently be worn on its own and stand out.
Unmarked, tests as 9ct gold.
Very good used condition overall, light surface wear to the gold.
A very nice fine piece for the collection.
