Cameo brooches seem to be very popular at the moment. This one, in a 9ct Gold frame depicts a carved baccante, finely detailed with vines entwined in her hair, so delicate.
I like that it can be worn as a brooch or pendant. Can you see the tiny stress lines that appear each side of the head?
Probably early 20th century, the reverse shows a rivet hinge with ‘C’ clasp.
