$0.00

An antique lava cameo brooch of the goddess Flora. The lava was sensitively and meticulously hand carved with impressive attention to detail. Each flower has its center and its petals; Flora's hair is waved, braided and entwined with posies; the neckline of her dress is cartridge pleated in classic fashion.

Flora's profile is exquisite, showing all the dignity and poise a goddess would have. Set in a gilt yellow metal mount surrounded by a chain frame that tests for 14kt gold. There is a long pin shaft that extends beyond the frame, denoting an early piece. In lovely condition, you can wear this cameo in complete confidence despite its age. It displays beautifully. A shade under 2" high and 1 1/2" wide. Approx. 16.6 grams.
