Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1870

A gorgeous Victorian Wedgwood cameo necklace dating from the 1870s. The colour of the cameo is unusual, a slate grey background with the classic white subject, and it depicts two angels and an urn: one is dressing th urn with a mourning shawl, and the other is carving the name "ELISE" (or Elisabeth) onto the side (suggesting it was probably a private commission)... the final letter remains unfinished. The reverse of the cameo is stamped WEDGWOOD, and it hangs between pearl-set chains. Offered on the period gold chain pictured
