Antique Italian Grand Tour Double Lava Cameo Portrait Brooch 19th Century (Code A695)
A very interesting small brooch comprised of two lava cameos. The cameos are probably Grand Tour pieces from the mid 19th Century and they appear to be set in lower grade silver mounts. They have been later joined using a pin bar with this style of pin dating to the 19th Century, so a very old joining. The cameos are of classical females in green toned lava, they have elaborate hair and carved with good detail for small pieces. No marks found.

Condition: Pin and catch working. Cameos are a later join to form a brooch. Some small damages to the cameos which require close inspection to see including a chip to the nose of the right most portrait. Small loss to edge at 11 o'clock on the same cameo.
