Antique Victorian Grand Tour Lava Cameo Portrait Bracelet | 7″
This quality Antique Lava Cameo Bracelet features ten carved Lava Cameos, dating to the Victorian era, modelled in metal.
“Travellers on the Grand Tour of Europe found the newly excavated ruins of Pompeii to be an irresistible stop. Lava trinkets from these sites made for excellent and inexpensive souvenirs, easy to pack and carry. In addition, pinning a lava cameo on ones’ blouse proved the wearer to be a well-traveled person of culture and good taste. The local industry was equal to the demand and created many cameos and intaglios out of this unlikely material to the unending delight of the tourists. These beautiful carvings were set into rings, earrings, bracelets, and necklaces.” – Lang Antiques (https://www.langantiques.com/university/lava-jewelry/)
