Superb Large Early Australian Antique 9ct Rose Gold Cameo By Aronson & Co circa 1895

Sale price$0.00 SGD

Laybys welcome! Contact Us today to secure your dream piece.
Wonderful, large and early example of an Italian carved cameo set and mounted by one of our well known jewellery firms Aronson & Co.

Featuring, in profile, the Roman goddess ‘Flora’ known in mythology as a goddess of fertility, springtime and youth.

Carved from King Helmut Shell (Cassis Tuberosa) in Italy by a master carver the execution and detail is superb.

Mounted and framed thereafter by the firm of Aronson & Co, (founded in 1878) in soft hued 9ct rose gold and stamped with their hallmark to the verso.

With original pin and C clasp and a tiny loop at the top which would have held a safety chain and pin ( we can replace this if wished) but this tiny loop with the addition of a jump ring or two could turn this piece into to dual purpose brooch and pendant !
Of museum quality we believe this fine example from one of our iconic early jewellery firms is one for the cameo or early Australian jewellery collector.
