Details

An exquisite antique Victorian brooch from the mid 19th century featuring a wonderful angel skin coral cameo in the centre depicting the side profile of a lady with grapes and vine leaves woven into her hair.

Angel skin is a unique form of coral desired for its rarity and pale pink colouring. It was often used as a base for cameos which were highly sought after in the 19th century during the 'Grand Tour' days when tourists developed a fascination with destinations such as Rome. They often depicted Goddesses and characters from mythology and became a favourite of Queen Victoria also.

The cameo sits in an ornate Whitby jet frame with a base metal pin on the reverse.  It’s a fabulous piece of history and displays remarkable detailing and high relief workmanship, hand carved by a true artist.
