victorian cameo earrings

$1,000

Undoubtably picked up as a souvenir on the Italian leg of the Grand Tour, these mid Victorian earrings feature two different (naively carved) shell cameos, one of a cherub with a beehive and the other of a cherub holding a dove. The cameos are framed in coiled, patterned wire and suspended from fluted spheres.
