Details

This expertly carved antique Victorian Bullmouth Shell cameo depicts a child at prayer on the banks of a river. The carved cameo is surrounded by a rope-work border gallery fashioned in Silver and gilded in Yellow Gold.

Cameos have been carved since ancient times and saw a revival during the Victorian era due to Queen Victoria’s fascination with the pieces. Bullmouth Shell was often used as a base for Cameos for its beautiful natural patterning which takes expert skill to carve.

This is a wonderful example of Victorian carving, and a fitting tribute to the skills of the jewellers of the age.
