IVORY MUSICAL MUSE ( Victorian Jewelry Ivory Cameo Brooch / Pin ): Beauty and grace combine in this exquisite hand carved Ivory Victorian Cameo Brooch. (c. 1880-1900) Not just another “pretty face”, this lovely rendering is a miniature work of art by a French master carver. This Antique Ivory Cameo depicts Terpsichore, the muse of dance and choral song. Her delicately carved hair cascades over her shoulders, curling and rippling in a manner that is almost sensual. Her heavy lidded eyes are closed as she uses her dainty fingers to pluck the strings of a lyre. Such depth and sumptuous detail only appear in the finest of Antique Cameos. The overall ivory grain and patina are rich and warm. The back retains its original C clasp and Victorian extended pin back. This Victorian Ivory Terpsichore Cameo is both a seductive and alluring work of art. She is a timeless beauty of the utmost refinement and worthy of a museum collection. Condition: Excellent. Size: 2 1/8” high, 1 1/2” wide, 1/2” deep.
