Art Deco Reverse Carved Glass Cameo Brooch
Amazingly beautiful and unique! This large sterling silver glass cameo is a conversation starter. The amber colored glass in reversed etched with a depiction of a torch bearer riding in a chariot being pulled by two horses. The chariot is adorned with eight round accents and is set in a landscape scene with trees, bushes and grass. Alongside the chariot runs a loyal dog, tail up high. Hand etched with an artisan crafted silver frame. The cameo is in perfect condition with NO cracks or chips. A fantastic gift for that special person in your life! The brooch itself is not as heavy as you would think! I would not use it on silk or a thin sweater, but it can easily be worn on a thick sweater, gent's sportscoat, ladies evening jacket, handbag, hat or as a collar cameo. It would also make a perfect bride's something old for her bouquet.
