Large Antique Victorian Aurora Fresco Shell Cameo 9ct Gold Brooch
The dawn and, Aurora, the Roman goddess of dawn, welcomes in the new day. Beautifully representing the ceiling fresco painted in 1614 for Roman Cardinal Scipione Borghese’s summer house, this extravagantly sized shell cameo brooch depicts Aurora lead by Apollo, the god of light, out of the darkness as female dancers known as Hours, symbolizing the passage of time, dance alongside the chariot. A torch-bearing Putto (an ancient personification of the Morning Star) flies above. This breath-taking hand carved cameo is set in a 9ct gold frame. A wonderful work of wearable art circa late19th century – early 20th century. The gold pin and neat roller safety clasp are in excellent working condition. All in particularly good condition. Size 2 1/2 by 1 7/8 inches. This item is in the category “Jewellery & Watches\Vintage & Antique Jewellery\Brooches & Pins”. The seller is “erh0000000″ and is located in this country: GB.
