Antique malachite cameos gold earrings
Here we have a lovely pair of antique earrings in Russian malachite hand-carved in a charming and detailed femal head of Baccante (the dancing followers of Bacchus). Look at the detailed carved grape leaves and the artistic facial expression. All mounted in a filigree 14K Gold frame (touchstone tested). An old hallmark is on the hooks. A typical souvenir of the Grand Tour period. From Rome. Second half of 19th century. From a Roman family collection. In perfect condition.
