Lava jewellery was a must souvenir among the Grand Tour Tourists of the 19th century in Italy. In different colours, always in classical subjects sometimes they achieved a masterpiece quality for the detailed hand-work engraving. Here we present a pair of antique lava earrings hand-carved in the form of a Roman wine amphora  (amphoris vinum) like the ones carried by the Roman ships all around the Mediterranean sea. They are lovely surrounded by grapes and leaves sculpted with details and realism. A typical Grand Tour souvenir. End of the 19th century from Rome. 14K Gold (touchstone tested). They are in perfect condition.

We are based in Sorrento (Italy) and we receive by appointment only.
